Odontogenic myxoma (OM) is a rare, benign neoplasm and is often located in the maxillofacial region. Clinical, radiological, and histopathological features should be considered when making a diagnosis. Several of these characteristics overlap with those of other benign and some malignant tumors. Soft-tissue localization that is classified as a peripheral myxoma is rarely seen than central localization. Peripheral myxoma is slowly growing and less aggressive compared to central myxoma and has a low recurrence rate. The probability that small peripheral OMs (POMs) are interpreted as edematous irritation fibromas may contribute to the small number of POMs recorded in literature. The treatment plan should consider the age and sex of the patient and the site and size of the lesion. In this report, the application of platelet-rich fibrin in the management of an unusual case of POM located on the gingiva in the posterior maxillary gingival region is presented.
