Osteoid osteoma is a benign lesion accounting for 3% of all primary bone tumors and approximately 10% of benign bone tumors. Approximately 80% of osteoid osteomas occur in the long bones, whereas less than 1% occur in jaws. Osteoid osteoma is most frequently observed in the second and third decades of life, more commonly in males than females, in a ratio of approximately 2:1. In this case report, we discuss the case of a 13-year-old female patient having a painful bony lesion in the anterior border of the ramus of the mandible, which is a rare site of occurrence.
