Abstract

Leiomyomas are the smooth muscle tumors that most commonly occur in the uterus, skin and gastrointestinal tract. They are benign in nature and rarely seen in oral cavity and it accounts for 0.42% of all oral soft tissue tumors. Angioleiomyomas are believed to be originated from perivascular area of blood vessels. Angioleiomyomas presents a diagnostic challenge as its clinical features are non-specific that mimics other exophytic lesions and is usually misdiagnosed.
Here we are reporting a case of angioleiomyoma in a 14- year- old Kashmiri boy.  It is very rare case involving mandibular gingiva. Clinically Lesion presented as reactive inflammatory hyperplasia and histopathologic examination revealed features of angioleiomyoma.
