Abstract

Juvenile ossifying fibroma (JOF) is an uncommon, benign, bone-forming neoplasm with aggressive local growth that is distinguished from other fibro-osseous lesions primarily by its age of onset, clinical presentation and potential behaviour. We reported a 10 year old girl presenting with a growth in the left upper buccal gingiva which later was diagnosed as juvenile ossifying fibroma. The nature of the disease and outline of management were discussed.

Keywords: Ossifying fibroma; Juvenile; Maxilla.
