Abstract

The spectrum of odontogenic fibroma, fibromyxoma/ myxofibroma and myxoma represents a histogenetically related but behaviourally distinct heterogenous group of benign mesenchymal neoplasms. The terminologies myxofibromas/ fibromyxomas have been used histologically in the literature in a contradictory way either synonymously to myxomas or to designate simple odontogenic fibromas/ fibromas undergoing myxomatous degeneration. This article is shedding light on the importance of these disputed terminologies and emphasizes on the required distinctions pertaining to the clinical relevance of the same along with a case-report of a clinically soft to fibrous lesion with a histological diagnosis of peripheral odontogenic myxofibroma in a 33years old male patient.
