Myofibroma is a benign uncommon fibroblastic tumour originating from the soft tissue, bone and may affect both children and adults. Radiographically myofibroma presents as unilocular radiolucency. Histologically, typical biphasic cellular arrangement is noted. Immunohistochemical markers are useful for definitive diagnosis of this uncommon neoplasm. Here, a case of six-year-old male child with a localized swelling in the left body of mandible is presented. The clinical, radiological, histological and immunohistochemical findings were corroborative of Infantile Myofibroma.
