Odontogenic myxofibromas are variants of odontogenic myxomas that contain considerable amounts of collagen fibers in the myxoid stroma. Cytogenetic studies of odontogenic myxomas/myxofibromas have rarely been reported. This report describes the first case of an odontogenic myxofibroma presenting with HMGA2 protein overexpression and HMGA2 rearrangement in a 40-year-old woman. A 2.7-cm tumor in the premolar region of the right mandible was curettaged. There was no evidence of recurrence or… CONTINUE READING
