Odontogenic fibroma in a six-year old child presenting as trismus

Odontogenic fibroma is a rare tumour of odontogenic mesenchymal origin, which accounts for only 0.1% of all odontogenic tumours and can be seen either in maxilla or mandible. Though it is seen in second and third decade of life, cases have been reported in the age range of 5-80 years. Trismus is a rare clinical presentation of this tumour. As there is seldom any malignant change or recurrence, the treatment of choice is surgical enucleation. Here, we present a case of odontogenic fibroma in a 6-year old child, who presented with trismus as a chief complaint.
