ABSTRACT

Introduction: Fibro-osseous lesion is a broad term for a diverse group of jaw and craniofacial disorders that are often painless, but grow progressively, if uncontrolled. They are characterized by the replacement of normal bone by fibrous connective tissue matrix displaying varying degrees of mineralization in the form of woven bone or cementum-like structures.
