Benign osteoblastoma refers to a benign tumor of the bone. Osteoblastoma most commonly affects the vertebrae and long tubular bones, however, in rare cases is observed in the facial bones. The current study presents the case of a 12-year-old female patient with a tumor in the mandibular body. Radiological imaging revealed a lesion with regular contours. The lesion was radically resected and histological analysis of the specimen demonstrated features that are typical of a benign osteoblastoma. The consequential defects of the jaw were reconstructed using titanium implants and autologous bone transplantation. The patient remains disease free subsequent to a five-month follow-up period. The aim of the present report is to present a rare case of benign osteoblastoma of the mandible. This study demonstrated that correct diagnosis and complete surgical excision are important to reduce the risk of recurrence of a benign osteoblastoma.
