Odontogenic Myxoma - A Rare Case Report

Dr. Saraswathi K Gopal | Dr. Sindhuja .N

Abstract: Odontogenic myxoma (OM) is an intraosseous neoplasm that comprises 3?20% of all odontogenic tumors and is characterised by its slow growth and bony invasions, resulting in painless facial deformity. Incidence of such a tumour is approximately 0.05 new cases per million populations per year. The majority of cases are asymptomatic and diagnosed in a routine dental radiograph, but there are few patients reported to have increasing pain due to invasion of surrounding structures. Here is a case report of odontogenic myxoma in a 25 - year - old male patient who presented with pain and swelling for a period of 8 months.

Keywords: odontogenic myxoma, Odontogenic tumour, case report
