AUTHOR(S): Dr. Malathi K, Dr. Annapoorani Subramanian, Dr. Jenapriya R and Dr. Aadhirai Muthukumaran
ABSTRACT:Increase in size is a common feature of gingival disease. Peripheral ossifying fibroma is a reactive lesion found on the gingiva and non-neoplastic in nature. It is most commonly seen in females and usually arises from interdental papilla. Peripheral ossifying fibroma represents a separate clinical entity rather than a transitional form of pyogenic granuloma, peripheral giant cell fibroma and irritational fibroma. Careful diagnosis of peripheral ossifying fibroma is important to avoid unnecessary aggressive therapy. The definitive diagnosis is established by using histopathological examination. A conservative surgical treatment provides an excellent prognosis. We present a rare case of 31 year female patient with peripheral ossifying fibroma in mandibular gingiva in the region of 44-46.
