Abstract

Juvenile Aggressive Ossifying Fibroma (JAOF) is one of the many jaw tumors affecting the children between the ages of two and fifteen years, being characterized with a rapid growth and extensive tissue destruction. Based on histopathological findings, it is divided into two variants: Psamommatous and Trabecular, both showing certain dissimilar clinical and microscopic features while presenting similar radiological findings. Radical surgical en bloc resection of the tumor has been proposed to be the standard of care however as this case report suggests that may not be the case in very young children presenting with multiple areas of bone involvement. Surgical curettage with close follow up and staged reconstruction and oral and maxillofacial rehabilitation may be justified in certain situations.
