INTRODUCTION: Juvenile ossifying fibroma is a rare, benign fibro-osseous tumour. In the light of a clinical case, the authors review the diagnosis, treatment and histological classification of these tumours.
CASE REPORT: A seven-year-old child presented with a naso-orbito-ethmoidal trabecular juvenile ossifying fibroma. Complete surgical resection via a transfacial approach was performed after a preoperative work-up comprising head and neck CT and MRI.
DISCUSSION: A review of the literature reveals that treatment of this aggressive tumour must comprise complete surgical resection via an incision determined by local tumour extension.
CONCLUSION: Patients with juvenile ossifying fibroma tumour require long-term follow-up due to the high recurrence rate.
