Aggressive enlargements of maxilla in pediatric patients are uncommon and present with diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma. The decision on therapeutic modality is based on an early and accurate diagnosis, minimizing disease-associated morbidity which is of utmost importance considering the young age and thereby resulting in better prognosis. Odontogenic myxoma is a locally aggressive lesion which is primarily seen in relation to odontogenic apparatus in mandibular posterior region in association with an impacted tooth. This presentation describes a unique case of odontogenic myxoma of anterior maxilla in an 8-year-old girl with emphasis on its diagnosis and treatment planning.
