The intra-oral soft tissue myxoma or peripheral myxoma is a rare, slowly growing, benign mesenchymal tumor. Pathologically, it may be difficult to differentiate from other tumors with myoxid stroma and is occasionally misinterpreted as malignant. Though its counterpart, central odontogenic myxoma shows aggressive local behaviour and high recurrence rate following conservative excision, no much detail is available regarding peripheral myxoma of the oral cavity in the published English literature. In this paper, a rare case of peripheral myxoma of maxilla in a 35 years old female is presented with emphasis on review of relevant literature, histological aspects in differential diagnosis and 'semi-radical approach' in its management.
