is a rare, mixed odontogenic tumor composed of dental papilla-like odontogenic ectomesenchyme and odontogenic epithelium.
Dentigerous cyst, unicystic ameloblastoma, ameloblastoma, and ameloblastic fibroma
are most frequent in the posterior region of the mandible and are associated in most cases with the third molar.
Differential diagnosis of ameloblastic fibroodontoma includes odontoma, ameloblastoma, ameloblastic fibroma
, odontoameloblastoma, calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumour, calcifying epithelial odontogenic cyst, and adenomatoid odontogenic tumour.
Intraosseous odontogenic or ameloblastic fibroma
was also excluded.
It includes ameloblastoma, odontogenic myxoma, adenomatoid odontogenic tumor, calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor (Pindborg tumor), calcifying odontogenic cyst (Gorlin cyst), ameloblastic fibroma
, ameloblastic fibro-odontoma, compound odontoma, and complex odontoma.
An incisional biopsy was done providing a diagnosis of ameloblastic fibroma
. Considering the aggressive nature of ameloblastic fibroma
, resection of the lesion followed by reconstruction with iliac crest graftwas planned.
The differential diagnosis for this entity includes ameloblastic fibroma
, squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma.
An analysis of the interrelationship of the mixed odontogenic tumors- ameloblastic fibroma
, ameloblastic-fibroodontoma, and the odontomas.
They include 20 cases of Ameloblastoma, 5 calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumour, 10 adenomatoid odontogenic tumours, 10 ameloblastic fibromas
and 10 cases of odontogenic myxomas.
