Abstract

Odontogenic Myxoma (OM) is a slow growing painless locally aggressive tumor seen in gnathic bones and is generally asymptomatic. OM is characterized by spindle, wedge or stellate shaped cells loosely arranged in an abundant mucoid stroma. It is found incidentally on radiographs and may vary from a unilocular radiolucency to a multilocular lesion with well-defined or diffuse margins. Treatment includes surgical management that may range from simple enucleation and curettage to surgical excision including peripheral osteotomy, segmental resection, hemimandibulectomy and maxillectomy. Here we are presenting a case report on odontogenic myxoma with recurrence after conservative treatment.
