Abstract

Fibromyxoma is a rare benign tumour of mesenchymal origin that mostly involves the posterior part of the mandible. It is a locally aggressive and slowly growing painless tumour that mostly occurs in second and third decades of life. We report a case of 2 years old child with huge mass of the right maxilla. After proper diagnosis mass was completely excised via sublabial approach and reported histopathologically as fibromyxoma. Because of its rarity in the maxilla and in this age, it is being reported here.
