The ameloblastoma is the prototype of a benign neoplasm with odontogenic origin. It will exhibit cell replication and growth throughout its existence, but it will not metastasize. The rare cases of amelobastoma that have metastasized are termed malignant ameloblastoma. Alternatively ameloblastic carcinoma represents a malignant tumour that bears a histologic resemblance to an ameloblastoma. Here we present a 55 year old male with a longstanding ameloblastoma of the mandible which turns into carcinoma.

    Ameloblastoma is an archetype of a true neoplasm of odontogenic origin. Most ameloblastomas have been classically described as a multilocular cyst-like lesion of the jaw. The unicystic variant is far less frequent and has been reported in only 6% of ameloblastomas. The presented patient is an...
