Enchondromas and non-ossifying fibromas, which are commonly diagnosed with only radiographs, are benign lesions.
The differential diagnosis includes a wide range of lesion from benign lesions (fibrous dysplasia, bone cysts ossifying fibroma, and eosinophilic granuloma) to malignant lesions (osteosarcoma).

Final histologic analysis indicated a diagnosis of ossifying fibroma (fibrous connective tissue with islands of calcifications similar to bone and cementum) (Figure 5).
2 Histopathologically, lesions are composed of loose fibrous connective tissue stroma having stellate-shaped fibroblasts with areas of myxoid degeneration resembling dental papilla covered by peripheral columnar epithelium which itself resembles inner enamel epithelium (covering of columnar epithelium is absent in odontogenic myxomas and odontogenic fibromas).
Ameloblastic fibroma is a rare, mixed odontogenic tumor composed of dental papilla-like odontogenic ectomesenchyme and odontogenic epithelium.
[6] It is interesting to note that the fibroma, a true neoplasm of connective tissue origin, is microscopically similar to the condition known as inflammatory hyperplasia, an increased bulk of connective tissue which forms as part of an inflammatory reaction.
Tumors of bones of jaw include odontogenic tumors, osteoma, fibroma, fibrosarcoma and myxomatous tumors.
