Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FLCOD) is a rare, but well recognized condition that characteristically affects the jaws of middle aged women. It usually manifests radiographically as a diffuse, lobulated and irregularly shaped radio-opacities distributed throughout the alveolar processes which are usually bilaterally symmetrical. This condition has been classified as sclerosing osteitis, multiple enostoses, diffuse chronic osteomyelitis and gigantiform cementoma. The lesion is usually benign and requires no treatment unless cosmetically concerning or becomes symptomatic. For the asymptomatic patient the best management consists of regular recall examination with prophylaxis and maintenance of good oral hygiene According to the recent review of literature in 2006, only five patients of florid cemento-osseous dysplasia from India have been reported (less than 2%). Here we present such a rare case occurring in a 37 year old female who came with a swelling and dull pain in the lower right back teeth region since 1 and 1/2 years. Radiographically, it showed mixed radiolucent / radio-opaque mass in both right and left premolar to molar region.
