Odontogenic fibromas are one of the infrequent neoplasms seen in the oral cavity with a prevalence rate of 0.1%. They are derived from the odontogenic ectomesenchyme with diverse histopathology. Found most commonly in the anterior maxillary region, these lesions have a female predilection. Odontogenic fibromas are treated by enucleation followed by extensive curettage. The cognizance of the unique clinical, radiographic, and histopathological features is very important to conclude a confirmatory diagnosis. This article reviews a case of central odontogenic fibroma which presented in our department and also elucidates the diagnostic criteria of the same.
