Desmoplastic fibroma is a rare benign intraosseous tumor with locally aggressive behavior. The mandible is the most frequent site of involvement. It causes bone destruction with a tendency to invade the soft-tissues if untreated. It has a high propensity for local recurrence if treated inadequately. We report a case of desmoplastic fibroma of the mandible treated with a wide margin of excision.
