Abstract Sixty-four cases of neoplastic benign fibro-osseous lesions are presented, with clinical and radiographic follow-up in 23 instances. A marked predilection for female patients was observed, with the majority or cases arising in the molar-premolar region of the mandible. Radiographically, these neoplasms are well demarcated and may be radiolucent, radiolucent with central opacification (target appearance), or multilocular radiolucent. A benign fibro-osseous histopathologic pattern is observed with osseous, cemental, and/or ovoid-curvoid calcified deposits. This feature, along with confinement to tooth-bearing regions, supports a periodontal ligament origin. It appears that the distinction between cementifying and ossifying variants is academic, as no behavioral differences exist. The recurrence rate following curettage was found to be 28\%.
