Odontogenic myxoma (OM) is a benign tumor originating from the embryonic mesenchymal component of the tooth germ. In 2003, World Health classification, OM is classified as benign tumor under odontogenic ectomesenchymal origin with or without included odontogenic epithelium. It is a rare benign locally aggressive odontogenic neoplasm attributed to the biological nature of lesion. The bones mostly affected are the jawbones. Clinically, it presents as a painless, slow-growing, expansile lesion of the jaws chiefly involving the mandible. Here, we report a rare case of OM in a 14-year-old female, where a large portion of the mandible was involved within a short span of 1 year. The lesion revealed typical clinical, radiographical, and histopathological characteristics of a myxoma.
