In contrast, Espinosa et al. Secondary mandibular reconstruction with autogenous grafts was delayed due to the rapid bone formation. Long-term follow-up is necessary owing to its locally aggressive nature and high recurrent potentials. When performing imaging studies, bone windows in computed tomography studies are the best.

Authors herein presents a case of juvenile ossifying fibroma of the mandible which caused expansion and destruction of mandibular cortex.

A case report on juvenile ossifying fibroma of the mandible.
