Objective: The odontogenic mixoﬁbromas represent about 3–6% ofall the odontogenic tumors. Histologically the WHO deﬁnes such pathologies as neoplasias with low cellularity. The incidence observed is between the age of 20 and 30 years, with true tendencyt o bony destruction, local inﬁltration and recidivisms equal to 25%.Materials and methods: The standard used for the analysis of the case are: clinical information about the patient, radiographic survey, and a speciﬁc histopathologic diagnosis. Case report: We introduce the case of a young patient, an 11-year-old caucasian. At the intraoral and RX-OPT examination we observed a lesion at the inferior incisive region, a dimension of 3 · 3 cm. It evolved very quickly in the two previous months, determining displacement androtation of dental elements vestibularily. In virtue of the young age of the patient we have decided to opt for a conservative therapy.Conclusions: They are more frequently observed than other neoplasias of the cephalic district in subjects of the age inferior to10 years with a ratio equal to 7%. Finally, for us, the more suitable therapeutic approach in the cases of odontogenic mixoﬁbromas in pediatric age, is the conservative treatment.
