During osteogenesis, mesenchymal tissues function to form fibrous matrix which changes into bone by ossification. In rare instances, fibrous matrix persists in which foci of immature bone is evident resulting in progressive enlargement. Such conditions are commonly benign in nature but few are anatomically benign and clinically destructive. Though recurrence and residual defects following surgical treatment are the challenging complications, fatal consequences are infrequent. We report a juvenile case of ossifying fibroma with an aim to highlight its clinical course and salient criteria to differentiate this entity from the common variants.
