Ameloblastoma is a true neoplasm of odontogenic epithelial origin. It is the second most common odontogenic neoplasm. Its incidence combined with its clinical behavior, makes ameloblastoma the most significant odontogenic neoplasm. Unicystic ameloblastoma refers to those cystic lesions that show clinical, radiographic, or gross features of a mandibular cyst, but on histologic examination show a typical ameloblastomatous epithelium lining part of the cyst cavity.1 It accounts for 5-15% of all intraosseous ameloblastomas. This article report a case of 30-year-old female with unicystic ameloblastoma associated with right impacted mandibular molar.
