Central odontogenic fibroma (COF) is an uncommon benign neoplasm composed by varying amounts of inactive looking odontogenic epithelium embedded in a neoplastic mature and fibrous stroma. It originates from odontogenic ectomesenchyme and accounts for 0.1% of all odontogenic tumours. It appears as an asymptomatic expansion of the cortical plates of jaws. Radiographically, it appears as unilocular or multilocular radiolucency. It responds well to surgical enucleation. Recurrence is rare. Here is a rare case of recurrence of COF reported in 18-year-old female in the left mandibular posterior region after 1 year.
