Giant cemento-ossifying fibroma—A case report and review of literature
Cemento-ossifying fibroma (COF) of maxilla is comparatively rare lesion of the maxillofacial region. There is often a misdiagnosis in the category of fibroosseous lesions, owing to an overlap of clinical, histological and radiographic features amongst the separate entities. We present a case of giant maxillary COF causing extensive disfiguration of the face, along with extensive review of the clinico-pathologic and treatment aspects of the fibro-osseous lesions.
