Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FCOD) is an uncommon benign multifocal dysplastic lesion affecting the jaws that consists of cellular fibrous connective tissue with bone and cementum like tissue. It is most commonly seen in middle aged black woman although it can occur in Caucasians and Asians. A case of FCOD in a 63 year old Indian woman with unique radiographic and clinical presentation is reported.
