Fibro-osseous lesions of the jaws pose diagnostic and therapeutic difficulties due to their clinical, radiological and histological variability. Cemento-ossifying fibroma is a rare, benign fibro-osseous lesion that arises from the periodontal ligament. Cemento- osseous dysplasia is another variant of fibro-osseous lesion which commonly involves mandible of females. We report a case of an unusual presentation of cemento-osseous dysplasia in a 13-year-old female which posed a diagnostic dilemma clinically and histopathologically, due to its close resemblance to cemento-ossifying fibroma.
