Abstract

Juvenile ossifying fibroma (JOF) are fibro osseous lesions that mostly occur in children. Although a benign entity, JOF is known to be locally aggressive and has a high tendency to reoccur. Two distinctive microscopic patterns have been described; a trabecular variant and a Psammomatoid variant. This latter variant is predominantly a craniofacial lesion and occurs rarely in the jaws. We report a rare case of Psammomatoid Juvenile Ossifying that occurred in the mandible of a young boy along with review of the relevant literature. In addition, the pathology of the lesion was also analyzed with picrosirus red stain and polarizing microscopy.
