Ossifying fibroma (OF) of the temporal bone is a rare entity, and constitutes a minor proportion of fibro-osseous lesions of the head and neck. Although these tumors are primarily described in the maxilla and mandible, a few cases have been reported describing that these tumors originate from paranasal sinuses and orbit. Here we report a case of a recurring ossifying fibroma of the temporal bone and discuss the management of these tumors, highlighting their tendency to recur despite complete excision.
