Aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs) are rare benign lesions seen as locally destructive, rapidly expansile, and mostly affecting the long bones and vertebrae. The association of ABCs with juvenile psammomatoid ossifying fibroma (PsJOF) is predominantly seen in the extra gnathic region, and it is extremely rare with only a few cases reported so far in the mandible. Here, we report one such case of a hybrid lesion in a 30-year-old male, who presented with a solitary swelling of the right mandible showing partial obliteration of lingual vestibular sulcus, which was histologically confirmed as PsJOF as a preexisting lesion, transforming into an ABC. Such hybrid lesions are usually misdiagnosed and have been sparsely reported in the literature.
