Abstract

Muscular tumors are rare. They hardly ever present in jaws. Rhabdomyoma have never been reported in this localization. Clinical and radiological features are non-specific. The diagnosis is based on histopathological features. It is difficult to make for leiomyosarcoma. Surgical excision is the recommended treatment, conservative for leiomyoma, radical for other malignant tumors. Rhabdomyosarcoma has a good prognosis unlike leiomyosarcoma.
