Abstract

An ameloblastoma is benign and locally aggressive odontogenic tumor of epithelial origin. This tumor comprises about 1% of tumors and cysts arising in the jaws. Because of its slow-growing nature, there is often a delay in the diagnosis. There may be a high local recurrence rate when the tumor is not properly removed, due to remaining tumor cells. Treatment decisions for ameloblastoma are based on the individual patient situation and the best judgment of the surgeon. This is a case report of a peripheral ameloblastoma that was treated with surgical excision, but resulted in recurrence after eight months.

Keywords: Ameloblastoma, Peripheral ameloblastomas (PA).
