Soft tissue myxoma of the oral cavity is extremely rare. We present a case of soft tissue myxoma arising from a mandibular anterior gingiva in a 51-year-old male patient. Histological examination showed islands of odontogenic epithelium scattered in the mucinous stroma. This lesion was supposed to have a odontogenic origin. The clinical differences between soft tissue myxoma with bone destruction and those without bone destruction are also discussed by a review of the literature. (J. Oral Sci. 42, 107-109, 2000)
