Abstract

Peripheral cemento-ossifying fibroma is a gingival growth of reactive nature thought to originate from periodontal ligament. It is commonly seen in maxillary arch and has a predilection for females. The pathogenesis of this tumor is unclear, though trauma local irritation such as calculus, masticatory forces, faulty restorations could arise this lesion.

This article presents a unique case of multifocal peripheral cemento - ossifying fibroma in a 42 year old female involving both maxillary and mandible arch. The lesion was asymptomatic, slow-growing, sessile and normal mucosal color. An excisional biopsy has performed for the lesion and was diagnosed with peripheral cemento-ossifying fibroma after histological investigation.

Keywords: Peripheral ossifying fibroma, gingival growth, Excisional biopsy.
