The odontogenic fibroma (OF) is a rare benign tumour of mesodermal origin characterized by varying amounts of inactive looking odontogenic epithelium embedded in a mature, fibrous stroma. The lesion appears frequently involving the anterior region, when fibroma occurs in the maxilla, whereas they tends to be located in the posterior area, involving the premolar and molar areas, when fibroma occurs in the mandible. We are presenting a case of 36 year old female patient who had cheek swelling and facial disfigurement for 1 year. Biopsy was suggestive of odontogenic tumor. Complete excision was done transorally with sublabial approach and was histopathologically called out as benign odontogenic tumour consistent with an Odontogenic Fibroma. Patient was asymptomatic till 6 months of followup. Desmoplastic fibroma and intra-osseous fibrogenic myxoma should be considered in the differential diagnosis. The tumour should be managed conservatively with enucleation and curettage.
