Odontogenic fibromyxoma is a slow-growing, locally invasive, nonmetastasizing neoplasm found exclusively in the bones of the facial skeleton. Although benign, it is locally aggressive making it difficult to treat. It commonly occurs in the second and third decades, and the mandible is involved more commonly than the maxilla. The lesion often grows without symptoms and presents as a painless swelling. The radiographic features are variable, and the diagnosis is therefore not easy in many cases. This article presents a rare case of odontogenic fibromyxoma occurring in the posterior mandible of a 75-year-old female patient.
