Abstract: Leiomyoma is a rare tumor of smooth muscle origin with very low incidence in the Head and Neck region. Oral cavity is devoid of smooth muscles except in blood vessel wall thus this tumor is quiet rare in oral and maxillofacial region with reported incidence of 0.065%. These accounts for 0.42% of all soft-tissue neoplasm in the oral cavity. We are presenting a case of large Leiomyoma of left buccal mucosa which was treated by surgical excision in toto and reconstruction was done by Anterolateral Thigh flap.
