ABSTRACT:Peripheral ossifying fibroma is a relatively uncommon, solitary, non-neoplastic lesion, predominantly seen in gingiva. Chronic irritation due to plaque, calculus, restorative or orthodontic appliances are thought to be responsible for the initiation of the lesion. Commonly used synonyms for POF include peripheral fibroma with calcification, calcifying fibroblastic granuloma, peripheral cementifying fibroma, and calcifying or ossifying fibrous epulis. This article presents a case of peripheral ossifying fibroma in a 25yearold female along with the clinical, histopathologic, and treatment details. Conclusion: Ossifying fibroma occurs mostly in craniofacial bones, the peripheral types how sa contiguous relationship with the PDL, occurring solely on the soft tissues overlying the alveolar process. The reasons for considering a PDL origin for POF include: exclusive occurrence of POF in the gingiva (interdental papilla).
