Peripheral Ossifying Fibroma: A Case Report

Vishnu.J.S, Manoj Prasad, Aswathy Krishna

The gingival is often the site of localized growths that are considered to be reactive rather than neoplastic in nature.Many of these lesions are difficult to be identified as specific entity only on the basis of typical and consistent histomorphology.Peripheral ossifying fibroma is one such reactive lesion which shows areas of calcification or ossification.It has been described with various synonyms and is believed to arise from the periodontal ligament comprising about 9 % of all gingival growths. Due to its clinical and histopathological similarities, some POFs are believed to develop initially as a pyogenic granuloma that undergoes fibrous maturation and subsequent calcification. It has been suggested that POF represents a separate clinical entity rather than a transitional form of pyogenic granuloma or irritation fibroma.This paper describes a case report of a 38-years-old female patient reported with growth on gingiva in the upper right front region of mouth since 6 months.
