Trabecular Juvenille Ossifying Fibroma of

the Mandible

Fibroosseous lesions are a diverse group of
processes that are characterized by
replacement of normal bone by fibrous tissue
containing a newly formed mineralized
Juvenile ossifying fibroma (JOF) is an
uncommon, benign, bone-forming neoplasm
that is distinguished from other fibro-osseous

Follow Up
In the present case, oral functions of the
patient remained adequate and cosmetically
After follow up for 6 month, there are no sign
of reccurences, no complication and good oral

JOF has been separated as a distinct entity
from central ossifying fibroma due to its early
onset and aggressive behavior.
JOF has two well defined histopathological
variants, psammomatoid juvenile ossifying
fibroma (PJOF) and trabecular juvenile
ossifying fibroma (TJOF).

Based on the clinical history, and histological
findings, the case was reported as juvenille

The main characteristics are:

the location of the tumour,

There is no consensus on the treatment of JOF
Radical resection, local excision conservatively
or enucleation with curettage are among the
treatment alternatives.
Rate of recurrence after conservative
treatment was reported in 30 - 58% of cases
(Alawi F, 2002)

The propensity of JOF to perforate cortical
bone may explain its high rate of recurrence
following enucleation as the tumor typically
has infiltrative borders.
Long term follow up with regular assessment
at 6 month intervals is essential to prevent
(Alawi F, 2002)
