Background: This case report describes a rare benign tumour, which presented as discrete areas of gingival hyperplasia affecting both the mandible and the maxilla. Method: Surgical excision of the lesions was carried out under local anaesthetic. Histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of oral myofibromatosis. Results: The condition responded to surgical excision and appears to have limited growth potential. It affects a wide spectrum of ages and can be alarming due to rapid enlargement and ulceration, so careful diagnosis is important to avoid unnecessary aggressive treatment.
