Abstract : Odontogenic myxoma is an uncommon, benign, locally invasive neoplasm arising from embryonic mesenchyme of dental primordium and exclusively present in tooth bearing areas of the jaws. It is most often seen in females of 20-40 years of age and mainly affects the posterior mandible. The lesion remains asymptomatic until it reaches a noticeable size. The radiographic features are variable. This article presents a case of odontogenic myxoma presenting in an unusual site and age with classic radiographic appearance. The clinical, radiological, histopathological features and surgical dilemmas in managing the same is discussed.
