Abstract

Osteomas are slowly growing lesions that are amenable to surgical excision when they interfere with esthetics, function or cause symptoms due to compression of vital structures. Due to their location facial bone osteoma demand minimally invasive surgery to avoid iatrogenic injury, functional interference and scarring, hence the need to perform intraoral endoscopic surgical intervention.The case presented is that of osteomas on the left mandibular body and condyle that were successfully treated via an intraoral endoscopic surgical approach.
