Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FCOD) is one among the uncommon bone dysplasias affecting the maxillofacial region. Reports from India are extremely rare with only five cases in literature. We report four Indian patients with FCOD, reported to our department during a period of seven years. The radiological features of the four lesions represent different stages, supporting the theory of progression of the lesion from a completely radiolucent stage to a mixed and finally to a completely radiopaque stage. Features are discussed and compared with that from other populations.
