Cemento-Ossifying Fibroma (COF) is a benign lesion containing fibrous tissue and calcified material resembling bone and/or cementum, and may be encapsulated or unencapsulated. They occur most frequently in the third and fourth decades, in females, and in the premolar/molar areas of the mandible. They are generally slow-growing and may cause functional deformities in patients at advanced stages. Another lesion which may arise in the mandible is the keratocystic Odontogenic Tumor (KCOT). These are developmental epithelial cysts which remain asymptomatic until they cause bone expansion, infection, pain, edema, or perforation. KCOT arises about twice as frequently in the mandible as in the maxilla. Like COF, they are typically diagnosed in the third and fourth decades, and have a high recurrence rate. In this case report, we present the radiographic findings and surgical treatment of a patient who developed both COF and KCOT in different parts of the mandible 26 years after being treated for a KCOT that involved the entire mandible.
