Peripheral Cemento-ossifying Fibroma is a reactive lesion which has been described with various synonyms and is believed to arise from the periodontal ligament comprising about 9% of all gingival growths. It appears that ossifying fibromas occurs over a wide age range with the greatest number ofcases encountered during the second and third decades oflife. There is a definite female predilection and almost 60% ofthe lesions occur in the maxilla. Trauma or local irritation such as dental calculus, illfitting denture appliances and faulty restorations are known to precipitate the development of this lesion. This report discusses a case of Peripheral Cemento-ossifying Fibroma affecting mandibular posterior area of a 45-years-old female. The mass was surgically excised, followed by appropriate treatment ofthe surgical site.
