Abstract

Three cases of myxofibroma of the jaws are presented: Two involving the mandible and one the maxilla. Computed tomography was found to be superior to plain radiographs in demonstrating the extent of the lesions. A mandibular case was imaged with both CT and magnetic resonance (MR). Computed tomography was found to be superior in demonstrating the involvement of the bone cortical plate. The information obtained with CT and MR may be useful for the surgical management of these aggressive lesions.
