Abstract

fibro-osseous lesions of the maxillofacial region are a distinct group of pathological condition in which all variations demonstrate replacement of normal bone by a fibrous connective-tissue matrix within which varying amounts or combinations of osteoid & mature bone and, in some instances, cementing like tissue are deposited. All of them have similar clinical, radiologic and histologic features. The diagnosis of these becomes mandatory because of the different treatment modalities for each of these lesions. Here in we have repoated three cases of Fibro-osseous lesions in the maxillofacial region with review of literature.
