Abstract Focal cemento-osseous dysplasia FCOD is a benign fibroosseous condition that can be seen in dentulous and edentulous patients. It is an asymptomatic lesion and needs no treatment; however, follow-up is essential due to the possibility that it can progress to a condition called florid cemento-osseous dysplasia.

Abstract Focal cemento-osseous dysplasia FCOD is a benign fibroosseous condition that can be seen in dentulous and edentulous patients. It is an asymptomatic lesion and needs no treatment; however, follow-up is essential due to the possibility that it can progress to a condition called florid cemento-osseous dysplasia. We report a case of FCOD of mandible in a year-old female. Clinically, the lesion resembled periapical pathosis of odontogenic origin.
An attempt has been made to discuss the clinical and histopathologic features along with differential diagnosis of cemento-osseous dysplasia. Keywords: Fibroosseous lesion, focal cemento-osseous dyplasia, periapical pathoses, residual cyst Introduction The high incidence and broad spectrum of conditions causing periapical radiolucencies make it imperative that all dental clinicians acquire a broad and comprehensive working knowledge.
Some of these periapical radiolucencies present innocent anatomic variations whereas others are a result of benign or malignant conditions. Focal cemento-osseous dysplasia FCOD in the tooth-bearing areas of the jaws is an asymptomatic benign condition, belonging to the spectrum of fibroosseous lesions. Usually, it affects two or more mandibular anterior teeth, and the radiographic appearance varies depending on the state of development.
In rare cases, the lesion may affect only one tooth and thus mimics an apical granuloma or a cyst. Case Report A year-old female patient reported to the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery with a chief complaint of swelling and pain in the right mandibular region since 1 month. Intraoral examination revealed a firm well-defined swelling in the 46 region.
Clinically, 46 was missing and 47, 48 were carious. The overlying mucosa was non-ulcerated and pink in color. Intraoral periapical radiograph revealed a radiolucent lesion in the 46 region approximately 9 mm in diameter with well-corticated borders [ Figure 1 ].
On the basis of clinical and radiographic findings, the differential diagnosis of residual cyst, condensing osteitis, ossifying fibroma intermediate stage and idiopathic osteosclerosis was made.
