ABSTRACT


Cemento-ossifying fibroma is a benign fibro-osseous lesion belonging to the same category as fibrous dysplasia and cementifying dysplasia. These are slow-growing lesions that are seen in the third and fourth decades of life. Both the ossifying fibroma and cemento-ossifying fibroma represent two extremes of the same disease process since histologically both contain bone and cementum. However, the term cemento-ossifying fibroma is justified on the basis of clinical and radiological correlation. Radiographs have become an essential tool in the diagnosis of lesions in the jaw, where the anatomy is complex. Nowadays, CT provides information for diagnosis as well as treatment planning. In this case series, we report three cases of cemento-ossifying fibroma that were histologically confirmed and discuss the imaging findings.
