  1. Recent update –> In 2017, the WHO consensus group for classifying Head and Neck Tumors, felt that reverting to the term “cement-ossifying fibroma” is descriptive of the lesion. This is because these lesions arise in tooth bearing areas (usually mandibular molar-premolar areas) and there is a consensus that it is odontogenic in origin (from periodontal ligament).The 4th edition of WHO classification (2017) of Head and Neck Tumors classifies cemento-ossifying fibroma as a benign mesenchymal odontogenic tumour.
