A 43-year-old woman presented with a swelling in the anterior mandible appearing radiographically as a well-defined radiolucency causing mobility of the anterior teeth. A clinical diagnosis of a radicular cyst led to removal of the lesion and the associated mobile teeth. Postoperative histopathology led to a diagnosis of intraosseous solitary myofibroma of the mandible. Solitary lesions of myofibroma are exceedingly rare in adult jaws, with only 3 previously documented cases.
