A benign, slowly developing osteogenic tumor that proliferates either cancellous or compact bone is called an osteoma. An osseous lesion mostly develops in the head and neck region. Osteoma can be classified into three types. The etiopathogenic of osteoma is unknown. The most frequently affected population is males rather than females. Gardner's syndrome is mostly associated with osteoma. Another rare complication of osteoma is malignant transformation but mostly has a good prognosis if the lesion is removed completely. The differential diagnosis includes exostosis and ameloblastoma. This paper aims to describe an osteoma that originated in the inferior border of the mandible and caused swelling and asymmetry in a 25-year-old female patient.
