Localized inflammatory or reactive overgrowths are quite more common clinical findings on human gingiva. Most of the lesions are benign and innocuous though some have potency to transfer in to a malignant lesion. These types of lesions are difficult to identify clinically as their appearance are quite similar so only Histopathological evaluation can detect their identity. In this case report we displayed a case of Peripheral Ossifying Fibroma in maxillary anterior tooth region in 32 year old female patient along with clinical, Histopathological evaluation along with present and future treatment details. Peripheral ossifying fibroma (POF) is usually a fibromatic, non neoplastic enlargement of the gingiva which shows areas of calcification or ossification. Synonyms for POF include Peripheral cementifying fibroma, Peripheral fibroma with calcification, Calcifying or ossifying fibrous epulis and Calcifying fibroblastic granuloma.
