This paper presents a case of odontogenic myxoma affecting a black boy, 16 years old. In his case, the body and ascending ramus of his mandible, on his right cheek, had been affected by the tumour. The treatment applied was the partial resection of the mandible, in a way that its condyle was preserved. Two years later, the neoformation of the bone in the area of the resected mandible was observed clinically and radiographically.
