Cementifying fibromas are rare fibro-osseous lesions that affect the jawbone and that are included by Gorlin in the group of mesodermal odontogenic tumours. Four separate categories have been identified: Periapical cemental dysplasia, benign cementoblastoma, cementifying fibroma and a rare gigantiform variety. The current case is reported because of rarity of such lesions and the paucity of information concerning them in the dental literature. We believe that this case illustrates many of the clinical, radiographic and histologic features associated with cemento-ossifying tumours.
