Abstract

Amebloblastoma as the most common epithelial odontogenic neoplasm may occur in two forms of central and peripheral. This report presents a case of a 41-year-old Iranian female with a six-month complaint from a painless mass in the right posterior portion of the mandible. The case was diagnosed as an exophytic epulis-like peripheral component with characteristics of peripheral ameloblastoma and an intrabony component like solid ameloblastoma. Two probable hypotheses considered for this case is also discussed.
