Juvenile Aggressive Ossifying Fibroma (JAOF) is a benign but locally aggressive fibro-osseous lesion. It is a rapidly growing non-odontogenic neoplasm of the jaws, generally occurring in children and young adults. It is often confused with malignant condition because of its clinical behaviour. Long term follow-up is necessary, considering the high recurrence nature of this tumour. The reconstruction of affected patients, particularly the younger, is often challenging since it has to be done in stages, to keep up with the developing face. We report a case of maxillary JAOF in a 6-month-old female who was referred to our department. Histopathological examination of a resected specimen revealed a trabecular type of JAOF. The patient was followed up for a period of 2 years.
