Abstract

In 1991, Handlers and colleagues described the Central odontogenic fibroma (COF) as a distinct entity which is a rare benign odontogenic tumour and up to the present, only 78 cases of it have been published. COF usually occurs in an adult patient and has a predilection for the anterior region of the jaws. A 2.8:1 female to mail ratio is typically noted. This article presents a case of COF in a 50-year-old male in the right side of mandible and discuss about the clinic pathological findings, radiographic feature, differential diagnosis, as well as surgical technique of the COF.
