Odontogenic fibromyxoma is a rare odontogenic tumor of mesenchymal origin. It is composed of large amounts of intercellular substance rich in acid mucopolysaccharides, making it locally very aggressive and with high recurrence rates following conservative excision. Its histological and radiological features make it difficult to differentiate from other odontogenic tumors and, occasionally, may be misinterpreted as a malignant lesion. Although the origin of a myxoma is still obscure, its origin from the dental follicle seems to be the most reasonable explanation. We report a case of odontogenic fibromyxoma of maxilla in a 32-year-old female patient.
