Fibro-osseous lesions are bony lesions where the bone is replaced by fibrous connective tissue and include fibrous dysplasia (FD), cemento-osseous dysplasia, and ossifying fibroma (OF). OF is a benign osteogenic mesenchymal tumor and clinicopathologically divided into juvenile and conventional subtypes. Juvenile OF (JOF) is a rare rapidly growing tumor of the craniofacial bones having aggressive clinical behavior with high recurrence rate. Pathologically, JOF is classified into juvenile trabecular OF (JTOF) and juvenile psammomatoid OF. JTOF microscopically shows proliferation of fibrocellular connective tissue stroma along with immature and woven bony trabeculae with varied histologic features. We report a case of JTOF of the mandible in a 12-year-old male with the initial presentation of painless swelling on the right side lower jaw. Clinicoradiologically, the case was suspected as central giant cell granuloma and odontogenic tumors. He was successfully treated with wide local excision and reconstruction and was on follow-up for 8 months without any recurrence of the disease.
