Abstract

Fibromyxoma is a locally invasive lesion that arises from ectomesenchymal tissue. It appears to originate from the dental papilla, follicle, or periodontal ligament. Fibromyxoma in the maxilla has been previously reported. Segmental maxillary resection and immediate reconstruction by vascularized buccal flap were performed. At 5-years follow-up there was no evidence of recurrence of the tumor, and good functional and aesthetic results were obtained.
The location of fibromyxoma in the area of the maxilla requires combined treatment due to the proximity of vital structures and the complex anatomy.
