Odontogenic myxoma is a benign, locally aggressive/destructive neoplasm arising from the mesenchymal portion of tooth germ, dental papilla, follicle, or periodontal ligament with an exclusive presentation in the tooth-bearing areas of the jaws. They usually present as an asymptomatic swelling in the second or third decade of life. This case report brings to the fore a classical presentation of odontogenic myxoma, with a brief review on its diverse features and diagnostic dilemmas.
