ABSTRACT
Introduction: Osteochondroma is the most common benign bone tumor. It is more frequent in long bones, by its pattern of endochondral growth. Osteochondroma in head and neck is rare. The most commonly occurring sites in the craniofacial region is the condyle. The other reported sites are mandibular symphysis, body and angle of mandible, maxillary sinus and posterior maxilla.
Case Report: We present a case of a women patient that presents face asymmetry with tumor in mandibular left angle. After the surgical procedure the pathological anatomy reveals osteochondroma.
Conclusion: Osteochondroma in head and neck are rare. Some cases of osteochondroma in mandibular angle are described in literature. Osteochondroma can be resected by intraoral or extraoral approaches. Only the mandibular condyle lesion require reconstruction.

Keywords: Jaw, Mandibular angle, Osteochondroma
