Abstract

Benign fibrous histiocytoma (BFH) mostly occurs on the skin of the extremities, while it is unusual to manifest on the bone and mandibular involvement of BFH is even rarer. The present study reports a case of BFH in a 42‑year‑old female who had a slowly progressive swelling of the bilateral mandible and slight facial asymmetry over a period of 4 months. However, the outcome of this patient was unsatisfactory, with the first and second recurrence observed 16 and 46 months after surgery, respectively. The present case suggests that BFH has a risk of recurrence after transoral curettage. Regular follow‑up is advised to detect tumor recurrence after the surgery of transoral curettage.
