Angiomyoma is a rare benign tumor originated from vascular smooth muscle cells, in other words, the tunica media, and the characteristic is the detection of numerous blood vessels together with spindle-shape smooth muscle cells. In most cases, it occurs in the subcutaneous tissue of the limbs, especially in the lower limbs, but it is very rare that it occurs in the head and neck area. In the head and neck area, it is developed most frequently in the larynx and the turbinates, and in addition, the development in the oral cavity (lip, hard palate, tonsil), nose, ear, cheek, parotid gland, and submandibular region has been reported. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report of angiomyoma that developed in the buccal space and some reviews of the literature.
