Oral focal mucinosis (OFM) is an uncommon clinicopathological entity which is considered to be the oral counterpart of cutaneous focal mucinosis and cutaneous myxoid cyst. It is comprised of a clinically elevated mass with a histological feature of localised areas of myxomatous connective tissue. The present study adds a rare case of OFM of the tongue to the literature, and we present a review of the most characteristic oral myxomatous lesions.
