Odontogenic peripheral myxofibroma or intraoral soft tissue myxofibroma is a rare, slowly growing, benign tumor. Only a few details are available in the literature related to this lesion, as opposed to its counterparts, odontogenic myxomas and odontogenic fibromas. To the best of our knowledge, we present the first case of odontogenic peripheral myxofibroma successfully treated with diode laser (810 nm).
