AB : The purpose of this study was to know the proper diagnosis and to establish the treatment plan of cementifying and ossifying fibroma in the jaws through the clinical, raiological, and histopathologic considerations. The authors compared and analyzed the clinicoradiologic features of the thirteen cases of cementifying and ossifying fibroma, diagnosed at the Dental college hospital in Yonsei university, Seoul, Korea, during the period from 1980 to 1995.
The obtained results were as follows :
1. Cementifying and ossifying fibroma occured in the mean age, 44 years, ranged from 29 to 65 years and the male to female ratio was approximately 1:5.
2. Swelling was the most common frequent presenting complaints. Other reported symptoms included pain, tooth mobility and asymptom.
3. The frequency of the lesions was twelve cases in the mandible and one case in the maxilla. And eleven of thirteen cases were distributed on the premolar and molar region.
4. Radiologically, eight of thirteen cases were well defined lesions, five cases were relatively well defined lesions. And nine of thirteen cases were mixed lesions, three cases were radiopaque lesions, and only one case was purely radiolucenct lesion.
5. Histologically, seven of thirteen cases were classified ossifying fibroma, four cases were cemento-ossifying fibroma, and two cases were cementifying fibroma.
