Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (gigantiform cementoma) in a Caucasian woman.

The present study reports a case of an uncomplicated florid cemento-osseous dysplasia in a 39-year-old Caucasian woman. The extensive dysplastic lesions affected all jaw quadrants and both radio-opaque and lytic lesions were demonstrated radiographically. Histopathological studies revealed calcified, partly acellular cementum-like tissue. All clinical, radiographic, biochemical and histological features were suggestive of the diagnosis of florid cemento-osseous dysplasia.
