OBJECTIVES The aim of the study is to perform a systematic review of studies about peripheral ossifying fibroma (POF) and to add a new case report. MATERIALS AND METHODS A literature search on PubMed and Scopus was carried out using various keywords. Furthermore, a case of a 10-year old female affected by peripheral ossifying fibroma in the 2.2 tooth region was described. RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS According to the PRISMA Protocol, 11 results that met the inclusion criteria were obtained. The POF is a gingival reactive hyperplastic lesion with a greater prevalence in the second decade of life with a predisposition for females. The pathogenesis is still unclear and the treatment consists on the enu-cleation of the lesion.
