Ameloblastoma is a locally aggressive tumor, of low frequency and slow growth that can cause great face deformity and bony destruction by its capacity to invade the spongy bone easily, of greater incidence in jaw and with worse prognosis when it appears in maxilar, appears more commonly in jaw, with predilection towards masculine sex, in an age rank of 20 and 40 years old. Its definitive diagnosis is based on the hystopathologic analysis helped by a clinical and radiographic analysis, that can show itself by mixed radiolucent-radiopaque zones, uniloculars or multiloculars with soap pumps appearance, and its treatment goes from the excision with bony curettage in the unicystic form to resection in block with extensive edges of security.
