The benign tumours known as odontogenic myxomas (OMs) are generated from the mesenchymal components of the dental anlage in the embryo.[1,2] Dental papilla, follicle, or periodontal ligament appear to be the source of OM. Its virtually exclusive placement in the jaw regions that support teeth, its sporadic relationship with missing or unerupted teeth, and the presence of odontogenic epithelium are all indications that it is of odontogenic origin.[1,3] OM is a benign tumour of ectomesenchymal origin with or without odontogenic epithelium, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).OM has a high rate of recurrence. Owing to inadequate followup and lack of information, a precise and exact recurrence rate is currently missing. The high recurrence rate of 25% is documented when more conservative therapies are applied. In view of its rarity, vast size including body and ramus of the mandible, and diagnostic and surgical challenges faced while managing, the present case is herewith reported.
