Peripheral osteomas are benign, slow-growing osteogenic tumors that are caused by centrifugal growth of the periosteum and develop as masses attached to the cortical plates.The pathogenesis of osteomas is unclear, and embryologic, traumatic, inflammatory, metaplastic, and genetic causes have been proposed. A solitary peripheral osteoma of the jaws is uncommon.The purpose of this paper is to present a peculiar case of mandibular peripheral osteoma with a particular radiographic superimposition that stress the importance of clinical and CT findings.
