Peripheral cemento-ossifying fibroma (PCOF) is a reactive neoplasm. It occurs frequently in anterior maxilla comprises 9% of all gingival growths and predominantly affects adolescents and young adults. It most commonly arises from the periosteum/periodontal ligament. A number of factors have been implicated in the pathogenesis of PCOF including trauma and local irritation. The definitive diagnosis of these lesions requires integration of its clinical, radiological and histological features. Because of the high recurrence rate of PCOF, a close postoperative follow-up is required.
In this article, we describe a case of PCOF in maxilla left posterior region in a 35 year old female patient.

Key words: Peripheral cemento-ossifying fibroma, diagnosis, recurrence, irritation.
