A 26 yr old Caucasian, previously healthy, noticed a painless swelling of the left palate of 2 mths duration. On examination, a left maxillary swelling was noted with extension into the cheek. The mass was compressible. The CT scan revealed a large expansive tumor. Histological diagnosis of the enucleated lesion was cementifying fibroma. We describe a case of cementifying fibroma of the maxilla, an unusual location for this tumor.
