Organizing Haematoma is a rare, non/neoplastic benign lesion with locally destructive behaviour that may mimic a malignancy. Usually symptoms do not occur, while the lesion remains localized. An Organized Haematoma is an encapsulated blood clot undergoing neovascularization and fibrosis. It has also been referred to as a hemophilic pseudotumour and/or a haematoma like tumour, which is rarely found in the head and neck region. Other reported cases have been related to trauma or an underlying haemangioma. However, most of the cases have no identifiable underlying pathology, trauma or systemic disease. We are reporting an unusual presentation of Organizing Haematoma over the edentulous mandible.
