Odontogenic myxoma is a rare benign odontogenic tumor of the oral cavity which is locally aggressive and non metastasizing. The mandible is more commonly involved than maxilla. It usually presents as a painless swelling in second to third decade of life. Radiographically, it can be unilocular or multilocular, so the diagnosis is not easy many times. It poses a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge because of its morphology and biologic behavior. We represent a case of 35-year-old female who had an asymptomatic swelling in maxillary right region since 7 months.
