Abstract

Juvenile ossifying fibroma is a rare, benign tumor that may present in the sinonasal area but has never been described arising from the middle turbinate. The lesion's locally aggressive behavior and close proximity to orbit and anterior skull base create a significant challenge for the patient and practitioner. This is a case presentation of a 7-year-old female with an invasive recurrent juvenile ossifying fibroma arising from the middle turbinate.
