Ossifying fibromas are rare benign bone-related lesions of the jaw. Early diagnosis based on clinical, radiologic, and pathohistologic findings is essential, since undetected lesions may expand and cause considerable functional and cosmetic problems. The treatment of choice is purely surgical. Periodic clinical and radiologic follow-up should be scheduled, since recurrence is possible. The present article describes the diagnostic procedures, surgical management, and follow-up of an asymptomatic ossifying fibroma in the mandible of a 21-year-old man.
