A case of aggressive Juvenile ossifying fibroma in a child has been discussed. The unique appearance of this particular lesion demonstrates a close relationship between aggressive ossifying fibroma and well-differentiated osteogenic sarcoma. The age of the patient and the location of the tumor in the case presented made it mandatory to utilize multiple diagnostic parameters and adjunctive diagnostic help to resolve the dilemma posed by this tumor. Differentiation of ossifying fibroma from other benign and malignant neoplasms as well as fibrous dysplasia is important in correct management of the lesion.
