Abstract

Osteomas are benign osteogenic tumour characterised by proliferation of compact or cancellous bone. The
three varieties of osteoma are central variant arising from endosteum, the peripheral variant arising from
periosteum and the extra skeletal soft tissue osteomas arising within a muscle. Osteoma arising in facial
bone is a rare entity. Peripheral osteoma has been known to occur in frontal, ethmoid and maxillary sinuses
but not common in jaw bones. We describe here a case report of peripheral osteoma of mandible in a middleaged
female patient.
