Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FCOD) is a rare, benign, fibro osseous, and multifocal dysplastic lesion of the jaw that consists of cellular fibrous connective tissue with bone and cementum-like tissue. The word 'florid' was introduced to describe the wide spread, extensive manifestations of the disease in the jaws. FCOD is most commonly found in middle-aged, black women with the prevalence of 5.5%. Reports from Indian population is even rarer, with only 5 cases in literature, Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia is generally asymptomatic, and is usually detected during radiological examination. In this report, we present a case of a 44-year-old female patient diagnosed with Chronic diffuse osteomyelitis of the mandible later, on radiographic examination revealed FCOD, secondarily infected with Chronic diffuse osteomyelitis and multiple impacted tooth.
