. Most ameloblastomas develop in the molar-ramus region of the mandible with 70% of them arising in the molar-ramus area. Radiologically they are unilocular or multilocular radiolucency with a honeycomb or soap bubble appearance Radiographically, 42 (59.2%) of the 71 tumors were unilocular with a well-demarcated border. Of the remaining 29 cases, 14 were multilocular, 2 were of soap-bubble shape, and 13 were unknown in appearance. The most common histologic pattern was plexiform, rather than follicular or acanthomatous.

They are commonly described as polymorphic tumours with a follicular/plexiform pattern in a mature fibrous stroma without odontogenic ectomesenchyme. [1, 2, 3
cases of ameloblastoma occur in the third to fifth decade of life. However, it is not uncom-mon to see ameloblastomas at any age from the second decade onward.

Singer, DDS1/Muralidhar Mupparapu, DMD, MDS2/ Elizabeth Philipone, DMD The tumor found in our patient was an ameloblastoma of the plexiform type.

Ameloblastoma, a benign epithelial odontogenic tumor, is locally aggressive. This tumor comprises about 1% of tumors and cysts arising in the jaws. It appears most commonly in the third to fifth. Various histologically subtypes have been described, including those of follicular, plexiform, acanthomatous, granular, and basal cells. Most literatures showed that follicular ameloblastoma is the most prevalent histological variant (64.9%) followed by the plexiform (13.0%), desmoplastic (5.2%), and acanthomatous (3.9%) varieties

Overview. Ameloblastoma arise from remnants of ameloblast or dental lamina, dentigerous cysts, or basal layer of oral mucosa.There is evidence that suppression of matrix metalloproteinase-2 may inhibit the local invasiveness of ameloblastoma.On gross pathology, the characteristic findings of ameloblastoma may include solid and cystic, multicystic and intraosseous or extraosseous, or rarely. Ameloblastoma is a rare, benign or cancerous tumor of odontogenic epithelium (ameloblasts, or outside portion, of the teeth during development) much more commonly appearing in the lower jaw than the upper jaw.
