Osteomas are benign osteogenic tumors that are often slow growing and frequently arising in the craniofacial bones and rarely originating from the mandible. Central, peripheral, and extraskeletal are the three varieties of osteomas of which the central and the peripheral types are commonly seen in the facial bones. Peripheral osteomas most commonly were seen in the frontal, ethmoidal, and maxillary sinus and very rarely seen in the jaws. Typically asymptomatic in nature, osteoma presents itself as a welldefined radiopaque mass. Herein, we report a rare case of peripheral osteoma of the body of the mandible of a 45-year-old female patient.
