Introduction: Odontogenic Myxofibroma (OMF) is an extremely rare benign tumor which only less than 40 cases have been reported throughout the world. OMF represents a locally aggressive behavior and has a high recurrence rate. Case report: In this case report, a case of OMF of the lower jaw that was associated with unerupted lower third molar tooth, is reported. Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) showed that the radiolucent area of the lesion was separated from the follicular space of the unerupted tooth. Histopathologic evaluation of the lesion confirmed the OMF and eventually the tumor was removed completely by block resection. No evidence of recurrence was noted followingsixteen months of surgery. Conclusion: The radiologicrelationship of the OMF with cryptspace of unerupted or impacted tooth, have not already been mentioned in literatures. To establish an accurate diagnosis, Correlations of clinical, radiologic and histopathologic findings are essential. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a beneficial modality to evaluate the tumor extension to the soft tissue, discriminate it from other odontogenic lesions and reduce the recurrence rate of the tumor.
