Psammomatoid ossifying fibroma (POF) is a rare, slowly progressive tumor of the extragnathic craniofacial bones, with a tendency toward locally aggressive behavior. The pathognomonic histologic feature is the presence of spherical ossicles, which are similar to psammoma bodies. Fibro-osseous lesions composed of POF and aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) of the ...
