The Non-ossifying Fibroma: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.
Pathological types of tumors: nine cases of aneurysmal bone cyst, 11 cases of simple bone cyst, eight cases of bone fibrous dysplasia, nine cases of enchondroma, three cases of non-ossifying fibroma and two cases of eosinophilic granuloma.

There are two forms of ABC- Primary (Occurring de novo) and secondary which complicates other benign and malignant conditions like-Fibrous Dysphasia, Osteoblastoma, Osteosarcoma, Chondroblastoma, Giant Cell tumour, chondromyxoid fibroma, non-ossifying fibroma. [4,5,6,7] In our case all the causes of secondary ABC were ruled out.
Non-ossifying fibroma Children Juxtaepiphysealregion 75% occur in the of the long bones.
The nonossifying fibroma is histologically very similar to the GCG which can, however, be differentiated from the latter since the granuloma- like aggregate of giant cells and the fibrous stroma found in GCG, are not typical features of non-ossifying fibroma.
Non-ossifying fibroma (metaphyseal fibrous defect) is a childhood disease and has typical radiological findings which are characterized by eccentric location, well demarcation and multilocular appearance.
Differential diagnosis of the findings included benign fibrous lesions of bone-like non-ossifying fibroma and odontogenic fibroma, myxoma and chondromyxoid fibroma or even fibrosarcoma.

Incidental lesions typically found in children include unicameral bone cyst, fibrous dysplasia, and non-ossifying fibroma. On the other hand, diagnoses specific to older patients include metastasis, multiple myeloma, enchondroma, and subchondral cysts.
(6) The tumours associated with oncogenic osteomalacia have been classified into 4 groups by Weidner and Santa-Cruz as primitive appearing mixed connective tissue tumours, osteoblastoma-like tumours, non-ossifying fibroma like tumours and ossifying fibroma like tumours.
From the surgical pathology files of the State University of New York-Upstate Medical University Hospital in Syracuse, New York, from 1994 to 2009, 78 cases of giant cell lesions of bone and soft tissues, including 23 giant cell tumors of bone, 8 primary aneurysmal bone cysts, 15 tenosynovial giant cell tumors, 12 chondroblastomas, 4 giant cell reparative granulomas, 6 non-ossifying fibromas, 2 fibrous dysplasias, 4 pigmented villonodular synovitides, and 4 osteosarcomas with giant cells, were retrieved.
