Abstract

Ameloblastoma is an odontogenic neoplasm whose significance lies in their impending nature to grow to huge size resulting in bone distortion. Unicystic ameloblastoma (UA) is a variation of the solid or multicystic ameloblastoma. It comprises for 5-22% of all intraosseous ameloblastomas. Biologically it is less aggressive variant which mimics an odontogenic cyst clinically as well as radiographically. Hence the histophathological examination is obligatory to diagnose such cases. This article presents a case which was diagnosed initially as an odontogenic cyst which further on histopathological examination was diagnosed as Unicystic ameloblastoma of mural variety.
