The benign cementoblastoma (BC) or ''true'' cementoma is a rare neoplasm arising from the odontogenic ectomesenchyme. It accounts for 1% to 6.2% of all odontogenic tumors. It more frequently affects young males in an age range of 20 to 30 years, occurring commonly in the mandible. BC usually presents as a distinct lesion with characteristic radiographic and histopathological features. It is always slow growing and attached to the roots of posterior teeth. Majority of the BC are asymptomatic until it produces pain, expansion of the jaws or compression of the inferior alveolar nerve. Well defined radiopacity surrounded by a peripheral radiolucent halo is the most striking features of BC. Hereby we report the case of BC in a 28 years old female patient and also an attempt was made to discuss the clinicopathologic features, diagnosis and treatment of BC with brief literature review.
