Abstract: Ossifying fibro myxoid tumor (OFMT) is a rare soft tissue neoplasm and may present diagnostic difficulty. Only a few cases of oral cavity are described. A 49 –year-old male presented with a mass in the vestibular region of the mandible middle line, complaining of pain for the last three months. The mass contains spindle and polygonal mesenchymal cells on the myxoid ground in histochemical examinations. The tumor had a partial fibrous capsule surrounded by a non-metaplastic bone trabeculae. Histopathological examination was typical for OFMT. Although most cases of OFMT follow a benign course, recurrence and metastasis have been reported. Therefore, this type of tumor should be followed carefully.
