A typical single gingival overgrowth known as a peripheral ossifying fibroma is hypothesised to develop from the gingival corium, periosteum, or periodontal ligament. The cranial bones are where osseous fibromas are most likely to develop, however the peripheral kind exhibits a close association with the periodontal ligament and nearby alveolar bone. It typically occurs in young girls and women (predilection of 3:1). In this study, a female presentation is described, along with a methodical approach to identifying and treating peripheral ossifying fibroma.

Soft tissues of the oral cavity are often affected by various mucocutaneous disorders of variable etiology, affecting both the skin and mucosae, with severe clinical manifestations such as blisters involving the tissues; and therefore, their appropriate management relies on their correct diagnosis. Clinical signs to elicit characteristics of blisters are a crucial part of the examination of patients with such disorders. It is therefore essential for clinicians to be familiar with, or rather be expert at eliciting these signs to frame an accurate diagnosis, since proper treatment and follow up will depend on which disease is involved. The Nikolsky’s sign is one such sign that can be helpful in the clinical diagnosis of pemphigus group of disease and differentiating it from other blistering dermatoses. This review gives an overview of sign of Nikolsky and other related sign, its clinical presentation and their diagnostic implications, using PubMed and Medline databases searching for articles written in English. Peer reviewed articles were targeted using the keywords “Nikolsky’s sign”, “mucocutaneous disorders” and “pemphigus”. Available full text articles were read, and related articles were also scrutinized and finally the search was subsequently refined to articles concerning to “Nikolsky’s sign”. It was concluded that early recognition of these signs is necessary to prevent delayed diagnosis and for early institution of appropriate treatment of these potentially serious mucosal and dermatological diseases.
