Psammomatoid juvenile ossifying fibroma (PJOF), a variant of juvenile ossifying fibroma (JOF), is a locally aggressive neoplasm of the children and young adults. This entity has predilection for the sinonasal region. It forms a differential diagnosis for many bone neoplasms. We report three cases of PJOF, in young patients whose biopsy showed the presence of psammomatoid bodies in a cellular fibrous stroma. The diagnosis of JOF indicates requirement of extensive surgery due to its locally aggressive nature.
