Abstract

Chondromyxoid fibromas are uncommon central bone tumors that are most often found at the proximal metaphyses of long bones. Chrondromyxoid fibromas of the jaws are very rare with only 18 reported cases in the literature. This article reports on a recurrent chondromyxoid fibromas of the mandible in a 10-year-old boy. In addition, a literature review of the clinical and histologic features, as well as the diagnostic pitfalls and recommended modalities of treatment are presented.
