Benign cemento-ossifying fibroma: a rare case report

Gurbax Singh, Jasmine Kaur, Jai Lal Davessar, Latika Kansal, Ajay Singh

Abstract


Cemento-ossifying fibroma (COF) is a benign fibro-osseous lesion commonly seen in the head and neck regions. It is considered as a benign, locally aggressive neoplasm that requires surgical excision. COF has traditionally been considered to be slow growing. We report a case of 11 year-old girl who presented to the ENT Department of our hospital with 7 months history of nasal obstruction, proptosis and headache. Computed Tomography scan images showed a mass in the right nasal cavity. This case is notable because involvement of the sphenoid sinus is rare.
