Abstract

Ameloblastic Fibroma of the Left Mandible

Iga Alicja Fudyma, Fareha Nazneen and Nitin R Wadhwani

Ameloblastic fibroma is a rare odontogenic tumour that can occur in the paediatric population. Morphologically, it may resemble an organized proliferation of developmental remnants of the dental lamina; however it can be reliably classified as a neoplastic process by its circumscription, bland mesenchymal component, islands of epithelium, and radiographic characteristics. Our case demonstrates the classic clinical presentation for this rare odontogenic tumour and briefly discusses histologic mimics.
