Management and positive outcome of skull-base ossifying fibr
The ossifying fibroma is a benign fibro-osseous tumor rarely affecting the skull base. The incidence of ossifying fibroma itself is uncommon. It is considered to be an aggressive and fast-growing bone lesion. Early detection and complete surgical removal are essential to deal with its aggressive nature and recurrence.

Researchers report a case of a 20-year-old man admitted for the management of ossifying fibroma of the orbital roof extending inside the orbit mimicking meningioma and revealed by a progressive proptosis and headache.

The patient underwent surgery for the subtotal removal of the tumor with its frontal infiltration with a good outcome.

All meningiomas like tumors are not meningiomas and other tumors such as ossifying fibroma might be mistaken for meningioma and even get confirmation from the pathological anatomy study. Need be for these tumors to be looked at more closely for better therapeutic decision-making.
