Odontogenic myxoma is an uncommon benign but locally aggressive tumor which exclusively arises from tooth bearing areas. We are reporting a case of a giant slow growing odontogenic myxoma of mandible in a 16-year-old girl causing significant functional and cosmetic problem. Giant size of the tumor has caused facial disfigurement, mental agony and foul smell, because of which the patient confined herself in the house and lived the reclusive social life. Tumor was widely excised and reconstruction done with titanium plate.
