Introduction Peripheral ossifying fibroma belongs to the spectrum of reactive gingival hyperplasias. Although it is believed to occur as a gingival overgrowth in response to local irritants, the pathogenesis of this lesion is still a controversy. Aim This case report highlights the presence of a rare combination of coexistence of peripheral ossifying fibroma (POF) and fibrolipoma. Case report A case of POF in a 65-year-old female has been presented with its detailed clinical, radiographic, and histopathological findings along with the diagnostic challenges associated with such lesions and the management approaches for the same. Conclusion Establishing an early diagnosis becomes imperative to rule out the potential for malignant transformation. This case presents a rare combination of coexistence of fibrolipoma in buccal mucosa which in itself is a rare finding. How to cite this article Arora AS, Das D, Tidke P.
