KORNECKI RADZINSKI, Felipe. Mandibular myxoma: two clinical cases and literature review. Odontoestomatología [online]. 2015, vol.17, n.26, pp.65-77. ISSN 0797-0374.

The mandibular odontogenic myxoma is a tumor of mesenchyme origin. It represents a 0.5 to 17.7 % of the odontogenic tumors. It is in third place according to the presentation frequency. This tumor is a histologically benign one but locally aggressive and with tendency to recurrence, which determine the treatment. In the present work two cases diagnosed with mandibular myxoma are reported: one is a 33 years old and the second is 60 years old. The both patients were surgically treated with the segmental mandibulectomy technique without disarticulation, with safety margins according to Prof. Dr. A Pogrel protocol, with an immediate reconstruction appliance, extra and intra approach and without graft interposition in the first surgical time. The tumor characteristics of the two patients with mandibular myxoma are discussed and their therapeutic options

Keywords : Odontogénic myxoma; mandibular reconstruction.
