Odontogenic myxoma

The “black sheep” in oral and maxillofacial surgery?

Objective: Odontogenic myxoma is a rare and locally invasive benign neoplasm. Despite being benign, it has a high recurrence rate and is troublesome to manage surgically.

Method: In this review we attempt to unravel the mysteries and controversies surrounding various aspects of odontogenic myxoma by searching the available literature on PubMed using Mesh terms. Case reports were excluded from the review.

Conclusion: We justify why odontogenic myxoma is considered a black sheep in oral and maxillofacial surgery.
