PURPOSE: To report a case of florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FCOD) and chronic diffuse sclerosing osteomyelitis (CDSO) in a simultaneous presentation, emphasizing the significance of differential diagnosis and appropriate management of these conditions. CASE DESCRIPTION: A female, 69 years old, black patient had a complaint of itching and pain in posterior left mandibular region. The patient had a yellowish hard mass throughout all quadrants of the jaws. A panoramic radiograph showed a lobular, diffuse and irregular radiopaque lesion. Based on clinical and histopathological findings, the diagnosis was FCOD associated with secondary osteomyelitis. CONCLUSION: This report reinforces the need of accurate assessment of clinical, radiographic and histopathological aspects for the diagnosis and correct selection of treatment in cases of combined lesions.
