Osteomas are benign tumors that consist of mature, compact, or cancellous bone. Osteomas that arise on the surface of bone are referred to as periosteal osteomas; whereas, those that develop centrally within bone are endosteal osteomas. Osteomas are rare benign tumors of bone commonly occurring in the maxillofacial skeleton. Most jaw osteomas occur in young adults and are generally asymptomatic, sessile, and solitary lesions. There is seldom any pain associated with this tumor. We herewith report a case of pedunculated osteoma arising from angle of mandible in an elderly lady.
