NASAL AND PERINASAL FIBRO-OSSEOUS LESIONS
Three cases of nasal and perinasal fibro-osscous lesions were described. Two cases of ossifying fibroma appeared in a 12 year old boy and a 23-year old female patient. One case of cementifying fibroma was seen in a 60-year old female patient. The imaging appearance of the first case of ossifying fibroma and of the cementifying fibroma was similar. It appeared as a well defined border ossified mass with expansion of the structures that contain it without destruction of the surrounding structures. The second case of ossifying fibroma showed a huge invasive mass, however, maintaining the expanded behavior and containing ossified or calcified area. The images studied included plain films and CT scan.
