Peripheral cemento-ossifying fibroma (PCOF) is a relatively rare tumor classified between fibro-osseous lesions. PCOF is an osteogenic neoplasm that ordinarily presents as an epulis-like growth with uncertain pathogenesis. It predominantly affects young adults, with peak prevalence between the first and second decades of life. We present here the case report of a 15-year-old girl, which was previously surgically excised twice and had recurred both the times. The disease duration was 2 years and a follow-up of 1-year was done. Clinical, radiographic, and histological characteristics are discussed with recommendations regarding the treatment is provided.
