Resumen

VAGISH KUMAR, L. S. Peripheral Ossifying Fibroma: A Case Report. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2014, vol.8, n.1, pp.147-151. ISSN 0718-381X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-381X2014000100020.

Peripheral ossifying fibroma (POF) is a relatively uncommon gingival growth that is considered to be reactive in nature and appear secondary to irritation or trauma. It presents as an exophytic growth with smooth surface. POF in older age group, observance of calcification in radiograph of excised specimen, pathologic migration, mobility and size greater than 2 cm is an occasional entity. The article presents such a rare case of POF in a 60-year-old female patient which was treated by surgical excision. This case contradicts the logic that this lesion occurs in teenagers and in second and third decades of life.

Palabras clave : peripheral ossifying fibroma; calcifications; reactive lesion.
