Myofibroma is a benign proliferation of myofibroblasts in the connective tissue. Solitary intraosseous myofibromas are a rare finding especially in an adult. Myofibroma is a benign lesion and its treatment is similar to any other benign lesion.This article reports a rare case of a 32 year old lady presenting with a complaint of a painful swelling in the lower third molar region, on examination the tender swelling had expansion of the buccal cortex. The diagnostic work up included OPG radiograph, CT Scan, and a deep incisional biopsy of the mass under L.A. The final diagnosis of myofibroma was made only after the histopathological diagnosis and Immunohistochemistry (IHC). The patient was treated with wide local excision of the lesion in the mandible under GA.
