Abstract

Juvenile aggressive ossifying fibromas (JAOF) are rare, typically benign pediatric tumors that are locally aggressive and have high recurrence rates. A 7-year old male presented with a palatal mass and a 3D printed model was created and used as a visual aide to highlight the importance of management in terms of functional, cosmetic, and disease-free outcomes with the family. The patient ultimately underwent successful enucleation with final pathology consistent with JAOF. To our knowledge, this is the first description of the use of 3D printing to help in the shared decision-making process for the treatment of this aggressive tumor.
