Fibro-osseous lesions of the jaws comprise a diverse, interesting, and challenging group of conditions that pose difficulties in classification and treatment. Common to all is the replacement of normal bone by a tissue composed of collagen fibers and fibroblasts that contain varying amounts of mineralized substance, which may be bony or cementum-like in appearance. All were stained with H&E to confirm the diagnosis in addition to the argyrophilic nucleolar organizer region staining stain (AgNOR… Expand
Ossifying fibromyxoid tumor of the posterior maxilla: a rare case report and literature review
Ossifying fibromyxoid tumor (OFMT) is a rare soft tissue tumor of unknown histogenesis, mainly a small tumor of soft tissue, especially in vicinity to bones, but its size can grow rapidly, comparable to central ossification fibroma. Expand
Commentary on: “An update on peripheral ossifying fibroma: case report and literature review”
To the Editor: I would like to congratulate Franco-Barrera et al. on their interesting article, but the manuscript has several infelicities which may hammer the integrity of its results. Expand


Trabecular variant of juvenile aggressive ossifying fibroma of anterior mandible
A rare clinical case of the trabecular type of JOF is presented and its clinical, radiological and histological characteristics are described to be able to distinguish this it from other fibrous lesions if encountered in routine practice and for appropriate treatment to be carried out. Expand
Maxillofacial fibro-osseous lesions
Summary Fibro-osseous lesions are a poorly defined group of lesions affecting the jaws and craniofacial bones. All are characterized by the replacement of bone by cellular fibrous tissue containingExpand
Ossifying Fibroma-one disease or six? An analysis of 39 fibro-osseous lesions of the jaws.
It is argued that as there is no absolute histological distinction between bone and cementum and as cementum-like areas of calcification are seen in fibro-osseous lesions of all membrane bones the distinction between ossifying and cementifying lesions should be discontinued. Expand
Ossifying fibroma: a clinicopathologic study of sixty-four cases.
It appears that the distinction between cementifying and ossifying variants is academic, as no behavioral differences exist in neoplasms with benign fibro-osseous lesions. Expand
Benign Fibro-Osseous Lesions: A Review of Current Concepts
The benign fibro-osseous lesions (BFOL) represent a clinically diverse group of disorders of bone that share similar histopathologic features and there is now essential agreement that the osseous dysplasias represent a single disease process. Expand
Benign fibro-osseous lesions of the jaws: a clinical-radiologic-histologic review of sixty-five cases.
The lesions showed a 13:9 predilection for the maxilla and frequently involved the maxillary sinus, orbital floor, and zygoma and the so-called “fibrous osteomas” of the jaws should be considered as examples of fibrous dysplasia. Expand
[Ossifying fibromyxoid tumor].
2 in 65 and 66 year old females and in a 44 year old male, more frequent in males 14-79 years of age, mean 44 years, are described, with diagnosis established after total biopsy of the tumor. Expand
Computed tomography of fibrous dysplasia.
Fibrous dysplasia is an uncommon, but important lesion affecting the jaws and CT can be used to determine the extent, specific dimensions and radiodensity of FD. Expand
Fibrous dysplasia: a nosologic problem in the diagnosis of fibro-osseous lesions of the jaws.
Precise criteria for the differential diagnosis of fibrous dysplasia, ossifying fibroma, gigantiform cementoma, chronic diffuse scleroses osteomyelitis, focal sclerosing osteomyeliitis, and periapical cementoma have been presented with emphasis on radiographic and behavioral features. Expand
Ossifying Fibromyxoid Tumor of Soft Parts: A Clinicopathologic, Proteomic, and Genomic Study
It is concluded that malignant of soft tissue and bone tumor of borderline malignancy exist and may be recognized by the previously proposed criteria of Folpe and Weiss. Expand
