|Abstract:||Florid osseous dysplasia has been described as a condition that characteristically affects the jaws of middle-aged black women. It usually manifests as multiple radiopaque cementum-like masses distributed throughout the jaws. This condition has also been classified by various authors as sclerosing osteomyelitis, sclerosing osteitis, sclerotic cemental messes, gigantiform cementoma, and various other terms. In this series, we want to document eight cases of florid osseous dysplasia in middle-aged, female ethnic Chinese and one case in an Indian subject on the basis of radiographic and histopathologic findings. On the basis of this series, incidence is estimated to be 0.01 case per year per 100,000 population. Florid osseous dysplasia constitutes 11% of cemental lesions in our files.|
