Odontogenic myxoma is benign, slow-growing, locally aggressive tumour arising from the ectomesenchyme of a developing tooth. It is the third most common odontogenic tumour. It occurs mainly in the 2nd and 3rd decades with slight predilection in females, and the mandible is more commonly involved than the maxilla. The lesion often grows without symptoms and presents as a painless swelling. Radiographic features are variable with a unilocular or multilocular radiolucency showing honeycomb, soap bubble or tennis racket pattern with cortical plate expansion. Histologically odontogenic myxoma shows loosely arranged stellate to spindle shaped cells interspersed in myxoid matrix. A case of odontogenic myxoma in 46- year-old female patient involving the right maxilla resulting in gross facial deformity within a span of 6 months is reported.
