Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FLCOD) has been described as a condition that characteristically affects the jaws of middle-aged black women. It usually exhibits as multiple radiopaque cementum-like masses distributed throughout the jaws. Radiographically, FLCOD appears as dense, lobulated masses, often symmetrically located in various regions of the jaws. Here we report a case of 49-year-old female, diagnosed with FLCOD on the basis of clinical and radiographic findings.
