Osteomas are benign osteogenic lesions with very slow growth, which may arise from proliferation of either cancellous or compact bone. In the jaw, these are uncommon lesions. A 45-year-old female patient reported to our dental out patient department (OPD) with a complaint of painless swelling in the right lower back jaw region for the past 2 years. A single, well-defined radiopaque lesion intermixed with multiple radiolucent areas was evident in the right body of mandible region in orthopantomogram (OPG) and computed tomography (CT) with hyperdense area with intermixed hypodense areas. In this case report, we discuss about the subsequent diagnosis and the possible treatment modality of this entity.
