Abstract

Benign osteoblastoma (OB) is a rare tumor of bone representing less than 1% of all tumors of the maxillofacial region. Vertebral column, sacrum, long bones, and calvarium are more frequent sites of this tumor. Clinically, patients present with pain and swelling. Histologically, contain a well vascularized, osteoblastic connective tissue stroma and occasionally, osteoclasts along with osteoid and varying degrees of calcification, as well as immature bone may also be noted. The main aim of this report is present a case of OB occurring in the mandible and a brief review of English Medical Literature of this tumor. Many bone-producing lesions possess some overlapping clinical, radiographic or histopathological findings similar to osteoblastoma. Understanding and correlating all features helps in correct diagnosis and adequate management of this rare entity. Hence, osteoblastoma has to be differentiated from other bone lesions for correct diagnosis.
