Abstract


Odontogenic fibromyxoma is a rare locally invasive, benign neoplasm found in the jaws. It commonly occurs in the second and third decade, and mandible is involved more commonly than the maxilla. The lesion often grows without symptoms and presents as a swelling. As the radiographic features are variable diagnosis is difficult in most cases. It poses a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge due to its unusual morphological and biological behavior. This article aims to elucidate rare case Odontogenic fibromyxoma of maxilla in a 27 years old female patient and also an attempt has been made to discuss this relatively rare entity in light of current information from the literature.
