Abstract

Peripheral Ossifying fibroma is a slow growing tumor commonly found in the gingival region in females. We discuss an unusual occurrence of peripheral ossifying fibroma on the hard palate in a young male. Clinically the lesion should be differentiated from a pyogenic granuloma, peripheral giant cell granuloma and odontogenic tumors. Definitive diagnosis requires excision and histopathological examination.

Keywords: Hard palate, Ossifying fibroma, Peripheral.
