Cement-ossifying fibroma is a neoplastic lesion of a bone-fibro type with an asymptomatic slow growth which involves facial symmetry. It is mostly found in the posterior mandibular areas with an age range between the third and fourth decades of life. Radiographically, it is a uni or multiocular radiolucid lesion with scattered radiopaque foci. It is necessary to evaluate clinical, radiographic and histological characteristics as a whole in order to determine exact diagnostic, since it maintains a close resemblance with fibrous dysplasia. Treatment varies with respect to the dimensions and stages of the lesion. The case being presented here is that of a 38 year old female patient with a cement-ossifying fibroma in the right mandibular region surgically intervened with a block resection of the right mandibular region and a colocation of an anterior iliac crest graft and a 2.4 titanium plate reconstruction blocked system.

Key words: Cementifying fibroma, block resection, immune-histochemistry, cito-keratin, osteocalcin.
