"Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research is at present a well-known Indian originated scientific journal which started with a humble beginning. I have been associated with this journal since many years. I appreciate the Editor, Dr. Hemant Jain, for his constant effort in bringing up this journal to the present status right from the scratch. The journal is multidisciplinary. It encourages in publishing the scientific articles from postgraduates and also the beginners who start their career. At the same time the journal also caters for the high quality articles from specialty and super-specialty researchers. Hence it provides a platform for the scientist and researchers to publish. The other aspect of it is, the readers get the information regarding the most recent developments in science which can be used for teaching, research, treating patients and to some extent take preventive measures against certain diseases. The journal is contributing immensely to the society at national and international level."

" Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research (JCDR) is a multi-specialty medical and dental journal publishing high quality research articles in almost all branches of medicine. The quality of printing of figures and tables is excellent and comparable to any International journal. An added advantage is nominal publication charges and monthly issue of the journal and more chances of an article being accepted for publication. Moreover being a multi-specialty journal an article concerning a particular specialty has a wider reach of readers of other related specialties also. As an author and reviewer for several years I find this Journal most suitable and highly recommend this Journal."

"It gives me great pleasure to be associated with JCDR, since last 2-3 years. Since then I have authored, co-authored and reviewed about 25 articles in JCDR. I thank JCDR for giving me an opportunity to improve my own skills as an author and a reviewer.
It 's a multispecialty journal, publishing high quality articles. It gives a platform to the authors to publish their research work which can be available for everyone across the globe to read. The best thing about JCDR is that the full articles of all medical specialties are available as pdf/html for reading free of cost or without institutional subscription, which is not there for other journals. For those who have problem in writing manuscript or do statistical work, JCDR comes for their rescue.
The journal has a monthly publication and the articles are published quite fast. In time compared to other journals. The on-line first publication is also a great advantage and facility to review one's own articles before going to print. The response to any query and permission if required, is quite fast; this is quite commendable. I have a very good experience about seeking quick permission for quoting a photograph (Fig.) from a JCDR article for my chapter authored in an E book. I never thought it would be so easy. No hassles.
Reviewing articles is no less a pain staking process and requires in depth perception, knowledge about the topic for review. It requires time and concentration, yet I enjoy doing it. The JCDR website especially for the reviewers is quite user friendly. My suggestions for improving the journal is, more strict review process, so that only high quality articles are published. I find a a good number of articles in Obst. Gynae, hence, a new journal for this specialty titled JCDR-OG can be started. May be a bimonthly or quarterly publication to begin with. Only selected articles should find a place in it.
An yearly reward for the best article authored can also incentivize the authors. Though the process of finding the best article will be not be very easy. I do not know how reviewing process can be improved. If an article is being reviewed by two reviewers, then opinion of one can be communicated to the other or the final opinion of the editor can be communicated to the reviewer if requested for. This will help one’s reviewing skills.
My best wishes to Dr. Hemant Jain and all the editorial staff of JCDR for their untiring efforts to bring out this journal. I strongly recommend medical fraternity to publish their valuable research work in this esteemed journal, JCDR".

"I wish to thank Dr. Hemant Jain, Editor-in-Chief Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research (JCDR), for asking me to write up few words.
Writing is the representation of language in a textual medium i e; into the words and sentences on paper. Quality medical manuscript writing in particular, demands not only a high-quality research, but also requires accurate and concise communication of findings and conclusions, with adherence to particular journal guidelines. In medical field whether working in teaching, private, or in corporate institution, everyone wants to excel in his / her own field and get recognised by making manuscripts publication.

Authors are the souls of any journal, and deserve much respect. To publish a journal manuscripts are needed from authors. Authors have a great responsibility for producing facts of their work in terms of number and results truthfully and an individual honesty is expected from authors in this regards. Both ways its true "No authors-No manuscripts-No journals" and "No journals–No manuscripts–No authors". Reviewing a manuscript is also a very responsible and important task of any peer-reviewed journal and to be taken seriously. It needs knowledge on the subject, sincerity, honesty and determination. Although the process of reviewing a manuscript is a time consuming task butit is expected to give one's best remarks within the time frame of the journal.
Salient features of the JCDR: It is a biomedical, multidisciplinary (including all medical and dental specialities), e-journal, with wide scope and extensive author support. At the same time, a free text of manuscript is available in HTML and PDF format. There is fast growing authorship and readership with JCDR as this can be judged by the number of articles published in it i e; in Feb 2007 of its first issue, it contained 5 articles only, and now in its recent volume published in April 2011, it contained 67 manuscripts. This e-journal is fulfilling the commitments and objectives sincerely, (as stated by Editor-in-chief in his preface to first edition) i e; to encourage physicians through the internet, especially from the developing countries who witness a spectrum of disease and acquire a wealth of knowledge to publish their experiences to benefit the medical community in patients care. I also feel that many of us have work of substance, newer ideas, adequate clinical materials but poor in medical writing and hesitation to submit the work and need help. JCDR provides authors help in this regards.
Timely publication of journal: Publication of manuscripts and bringing out the issue in time is one of the positive aspects of JCDR and is possible with strong support team in terms of peer reviewers, proof reading, language check, computer operators, etc. This is one of the great reasons for authors to submit their work with JCDR. Another best part of JCDR is "Online first Publications" facilities available for the authors. This facility not only provides the prompt publications of the manuscripts but at the same time also early availability of the manuscripts for the readers.
Indexation and online availability: Indexation transforms the journal in some sense from its local ownership to the worldwide professional community and to the public.JCDR is indexed with Embase & EMbiology, Google Scholar, Index Copernicus, Chemical Abstracts Service, Journal seek Database, Indian Science Abstracts, to name few of them. Manuscriptspublished in JCDR are available on major search engines ie; google, yahoo, msn.
In the era of fast growing newer technologies, and in computer and internet friendly environment the manuscripts preparation, submission, review, revision, etc and all can be done and checked with a click from all corer of the world, at any time. Of course there is always a scope for improvement in every field and none is perfect. To progress, one needs to identify the areas of one's weakness and to strengthen them.
It is well said that "happy beginning is half done" and it fits perfectly with JCDR. It has grown considerably and I feel it has already grown up from its infancy to adolescence, achieving the status of standard online e-journal form Indian continent since its inception in Feb 2007. This had been made possible due to the efforts and the hard work put in it. The way the JCDR is improving with every new volume, with good quality original manuscripts, makes it a quality journal for readers. I must thank and congratulate Dr Hemant Jain, Editor-in-Chief JCDR and his team for their sincere efforts, dedication, and determination for making JCDR a fast growing journal.
Every one of us: authors, reviewers, editors, and publisher are responsible for enhancing the stature of the journal. I wish for a great success for JCDR."

"On looking back through my Gmail archives after being requested by the journal to write a short editorial about my experiences of publishing with the Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research (JCDR), I came across an e-mail from Dr. Hemant Jain, Editor, in March 2007, which introduced the new electronic journal. The main features of the journal which were outlined in the e-mail were extensive author support, cash rewards, the peer review process, and other salient features of the journal.
Over a span of over four years, we (I and my colleagues) have published around 25 articles in the journal. In this editorial, I plan to briefly discuss my experiences of publishing with JCDR and the strengths of the journal and to finally address the areas for improvement.
My experiences of publishing with JCDR: Overall, my experiences of publishing withJCDR have been positive. The best point about the journal is that it responds to queries from the author. This may seem to be simple and not too much to ask for, but unfortunately, many journals in the subcontinent and from many developing countries do not respond or they respond with a long delay to the queries from the authors 1. The reasons could be many, including lack of optimal secretarial and other support. Another problem with many journals is the slowness of the review process. Editorial processing and peer review can take anywhere between a year to two years with some journals. Also, some journals do not keep the contributors informed about the progress of the review process. Due to the long review process, the articles can lose their relevance and topicality. A major benefit with JCDR is the timeliness and promptness of its response. In Dr Jain's e-mail which was sent to me in 2007, before the introduction of the Pre-publishing system, he had stated that he had received my submission and that he would get back to me within seven days and he did!
Most of the manuscripts are published within 3 to 4 months of their submission if they are found to be suitable after the review process. JCDR is published bimonthly and the accepted articles were usually published in the next issue. Recently, due to the increased volume of the submissions, the review process has become slower and it ?? Section can take from 4 to 6 months for the articles to be reviewed. The journal has an extensive author support system and it has recently introduced a paid expedited review process. The journal also mentions the average time for processing the manuscript under different submission systems - regular submission and expedited review.
Strengths of the journal: The journal has an online first facility in which the accepted manuscripts may be published on the website before being included in a regular issue of the journal. This cuts down the time between their acceptance and the publication. The journal is indexed in many databases, though not in PubMed. The editorial board should now take steps to index the journal in PubMed. The journal has a system of notifying readers through e-mail when a new issue is released. Also, the articles are available in both the HTML and the PDF formats. I especially like the new and colorful page format of the journal. Also, the access statistics of the articles are available. The prepublication and the manuscript tracking system are also helpful for the authors.
Areas for improvement: In certain cases, I felt that the peer review process of the manuscripts was not up to international standards and that it should be strengthened. Also, the number of manuscripts in an issue is high and it may be difficult for readers to go through all of them. The journal can consider tightening of the peer review process and increasing the quality standards for the acceptance of the manuscripts. I faced occasional problems with the online manuscript submission (Pre-publishing) system, which have to be addressed.
Overall, the publishing process with JCDR has been smooth, quick and relatively hassle free and I can recommend other authors to consider the journal as an outlet for their work."

Cemento-ossifying fibroma is a fibro-osseous lesion which belongs to the same category as fibrous dysplasia and cementossifying dysplasia. In a recent WHO classification (2005), the term ‘cemento-ossifying fibroma’ was replaced with ‘ossifying fibroma’. These are slow growing, painless lesions which are seen more commonly in women between the third and fourth decades of life. We are reporting an unusual case report of a central ossifying fibroma of the left mandible in an 18 year old male patient who presented with a painful swelling on the left side of the face. The lesion was treated with surgical resection and reconstruction.


Ossifying fibroma, Fibro-osseous lesions, Cemento-ossifying fibroma

Central Ossifying Fibroma (COF) is a benign osseous neoplasm which consists of highly cellular, fibrous tissue with varying amounts of calcified tissue, which resembles the bone, the cementum or both (1). COF very closely resembles lesions such as fibrous dysplasia, cemetifying periapical dysplasia or cemento-osseous florid dysplasia. COF is believed to originate from the periodontal membrane (2). It is usually seen in the third to fourth decades of life and it generally shows a female predominance (3). Most of the cases are located in the mandible, as a painless swelling (4). Radiographically, COF presents as a well-defined, unilocular lesion which contains varying amounts of radiopaque material (5). Once it is completely excised, COF does not usually recur (6). Here, we are reporting an unusual case of COF in the left side of the mandible.

Case Report

An 18-year old male patient reported to our institute with the chief complaint of swelling on the left side of the face since five years and pain since one week. His history revealed that the swelling was small in size primarily, which was initially at the left side of the mandible, which had gradually increased recently and attained the present size. The pain was intermittent in nature, which subsided on taking analgesics. Since the patient had not had any pain, discomfort or facial deformity earlier, he did not visit any hospital. His extra-oral examination showed a swelling of about 6 x 7 centimetre in size. The swelling was hard in consistency. On palpation, mild tenderness was noted. His intra-oral examination showed a swelling on the left side of the lower jaw, at the molar region. Expansion of the buccal and the lingual cortical plates was seen over that region. All the molars at that site were absent. Pus discharge was also observed in that region. An orthopantamograph revealed a radiopaque lesion which was distal to the lower left second premolar, which extended from the alveolar crest to the inferior borders of the mandible. Surrounding the lesion, radiolucency was observed. Computerized tomography showed the presence of a well defined, lobulated, hyperdense lesion which measured about 3.5 x 3.2 cm of HU 1600, with thin perilesional lucency, in the body of the mandible on the left side. Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the mandible revealeda large, lobulated, well defined, expansile, altered signal intensity which measured 3.3 x 2.5 cm, which was hypotense, which was noted in the body of the mandible, on the left side. A biopsy was done and histopathologically, the lesion showed dense connective tissue stroma, which contained areas of immature bone formation and cementum like tissue and a diagnosis of COF was given.

After obtaining consent from both the patient and the physician, resection of the tumour and reconstruction was planned under general anaesthesia. An intraoral incision was made from the lower left incisor region to the distal part of the lower left third molarregion. A vertical releasing incision was made at the incisor region. The mucoperiosteal flap was raised and after preserving the mental nerve, the lesion was exposed upto the inferior border. Vertical slop cuts and a horizontal cut were made, with bur holes. The lesion was removed in toto. The reconstruction angle plate was fixed withscrews over the site and a thorough irrigation with antiseptic fluids was done. This case was followed up for one year at three monthly intervals and the healing was uneventful.


Fibro-osseous lesions (FOL) are a group of conditions which are characterized by the replacement of normal bone by fibrous tissue, which contains a newly formed, mineralized product (7). They include, fibrous dysplasia (FD), cemento-ossifying dysplasia (COD), COF and their subtypes (8). Various classifications were proposed to classify these lesions (7),(9). Branon and Fowler were the first to use the term ‘ossifying fibroma’ (OF) in place of COF and the recent WHO (2005) edition of the classification of odontogenic neoplasms has replaced the term COF with OF (6),(10). The origin of COF is not clearly understood. Few authors have considered that these lesions arose from the periodontal membrane which contains multi-potential cells, that under certain pathologic conditions, are capable of producing tumours which are composed of either cementum, lamellar bone or fibrous tissue (2). Based on their pathogenesis, Waldron (1985) subclassified COFs as medullary or periodontal ligamentous in origin (7). A more aggressive form of COF which occurs in younger individuals has been designated as Juvenile COF (11).

Review of the literature has revealed that COFs are usually seen in the third and fourth decades of life. However, our patient was much younger, 18-years old (3). Most of the studies showed a female predominance, whereas in our case, the patient was a male (3). Although few cases have been reported in the maxilla, the most common location is the mandible, which was the same in our case also (5),(12). Classically, the patients present with a painless swelling, though with time, the lesion may become large enough to cause facial deformation, whereas in our case, the patient presented with a painful swelling which was associated with pus discharge (13). MacDonald-Jankowski described three stages of COF, based on the radiographic features; an initial radiolucent stage, then a mixed stage and eventually, a sclerotic appearing stage (4). COF usually presents as a mixed lesion with well defined borders. Our case presented as a radiopaque mass with surrounding radiolucency (6).

Histopathologically, COF shows a well vascularized fibrocellular connective tissue with immature bony trabeculae and cementoid, but these findings are not specific to COF alone and they can also be seen in FD. Our case also showed similar findings of areas of immature bone and cementum like tissue in the connective tissue. Because of the overlapping histologic features, the diagnosis of the individual lesions in the FOL group poses a difficulty (14),(15). The differential diagnosis of COF includes fibrous dysplasia (FD), a calcifying odontogenic cyst (COC), cementoblastoma, chondrosarcoma and osteosarcoma. FD has a characteristic ‘ground glass’ appearance. COC and cementoblastomas are associated with the roots of vital permanent teeth. COF is differentiated from sarcomas by presence of well defined margins (5). Surgical curettage or enucleation with a long term follow-up is the initial treatment of choice for small COFs, whereas surgical resection is indicated for the large lesions (5),(15). Eversole et al reported a recurrence rate of 28 % following curettage (4). Hence, a long term follow-up of the patients is recommended. In our case, we carried out surgical resection and reconstruction and the followup revealed normal healing.


We reported a case of COF in an 18-year old male patient who came with a radiopaque swelling and pus discharge on the left side of the mandible. We suggest that a proper correlation of the clinical, radiological and the histological features is necessary for establishing a definitive diagnosis, as well as for categorizing the FOL lesions. Since chances of recurrence of COF are reported in the literature, surgical resection and follow-up of the patients is warranted.
