Peripheral ossifying fibroma (POF) is a benign fibrous gingival neoplasm that affects the jaws and bones of the maxillofacial region, this is considered a reactive lesion of the gingiva. the present case aimed to report a recurrence of ossifying fibroma due to incomplete surgical recession. The pathology was diagnosed in a 49-year-old patient, who presented with a simple, symptomatic hyperplastic tumor lesion in the posterior buccal area of the maxilla within one month of evolution. The initial management consisted of the conservative surgical resection of the lesion, but due to the recurrence that occurred 7 days later, the lesion was excised together with the extraction of tooth #27, which was compromised, presenting fibro-osseous tissue in a root portion. In conclusion, histopathological study is essential in managing and treating this lesion.
