Peripheral ossifying fibroma belongs to the group of reactive focal lesions occurring on the gingiva. It is usually solitary and tends to occur in teenagers and young adults with a female predilection. In this article, we have reported a rare case of peripheral ossifying fibroma occurring in a 60-year-old female in the maxillary anterior region, with superficial ulceration and pathologic migration of adjacent teeth.
