Maxillofacial fibro-osseous lesions comprise a group of face and jaw disorders characterized by the replacement of bone by a benign connective-tissue matrix with varying amount of mineralized substances. Fibro-osseous lesions of the maxilla are not an uncommon tumor. Majority of the lesions with fibrous and osseous components include ossifying fibroma, fibrous dysplasia, cemento-ossifying fibroma, and cementifying fibroma.

Histopathology established that fibroosseous lesion as an ossifying fibroma.
