Cemento-osseous dysplasia (COD) is a non-neoplastic process usually confined to the tooth-bearing areas of the jaws or the edentulous alveolar processes. It is mostly seen in the third and fourth decades of life. It is mostly seen in women, and the mandible is the most common location in 70% of the cases in the premolar-molar region. The present case report was a case of cement-ossifying fibroma with clinical features and radiographic features in a 23-year-old female patient.

Ewing's sarcoma arising from the bones of the head and neck region is extremely rare; only 4–9% of all Ewing's sarcoma originate in this region. We report a case of Ewing's sarcoma localized in the mandible because of its unusual presentation.
