Odontogenic myxoma is a rare, locally aggressive, benign tumor of the jaws representing less than 0.5% of all bone tumors and only 3 to 6% of odontogenic tumors. This article reviews five cases of the same treated in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, KLE's VK Institute of Dental Sciences between 1993 and 2010. One case of left maxillary sinus odontogenic myxoma in a 30-year-old female patient was of aggressive nature and has been described in detail in this report.
