FIRST PARAGRAPH: Ossifying fibroma of the jaw is a benign, fibro-osseous lesion that is part of a larger family of fibro-osseous lesions that includes juvenile active ossifying fibroma, psammomatous ossifying fibroma, and extragnathic ossifying fibroma of the skull. Ossifying fibromas of the jaw are well-circumscribed, slowly growing lesions. They are often mentioned in the same differential diagnosis as fibrous dysplasia, but it is important to make the distinction because the former lends itself to ready enucleation, while the latter can be admixed with surrounding tissues, making surgery more complicated.
