Peripheral ossifying fibroma (POF) occurs as a gingival overgrowth. The purpose of this article is to present a case of POF, briefly reviewing the current literature on this condition and emphasize the importance of inclusion of this lesion into list of all the pathologies, specially the gingival overgrowths. A case report of peripheral ossifying fibroma (POF) is reported in young adolescent which comprises the growth that occurred in the mandibular anterior region with displacement of anterior teeth, its satisfactory management and literature review. POF represents a reactive benign lesion of connective tissue and is not the soft tissue counterpart of ossifying fibroma and is also not related to peripheral odontogenic fibroma. Careful clinical examination and histopathology findings should be correlated to conclude the final diagnosis. Treatment consists of surgical excision with periodic follow-ups to observe any recurrence.
