Abstract :

Desmoplastic ameloblastoma (DA) is benign, locally invasive, intraosseous infiltrative tumor with a relatively rare histological variation. DA has a nearly equal male to female ratio with prevalence within the fourth and fifth decades. This case report focuses on a DA which occurred in a 17 years girl with painless swelling with the involvement of midline to angle of mandible which deserves special importance because of its unfamiliar appearances, potentially aggressive nature and high chances of misdiagnosis. Computed tomography demonstrated ill–defined radiolucent lesion mimicking a dentigerous cyst. After performing incisional biopsy and histopathology showed dense, collagenous fious tissue in which the neoplastic epithelium forms small irregular islands having slender, straggling extensions. The final histological diagnosis was DA. Resection of mandible was a line of treatment. This article aims to provide additional clinical, radiographic and histological data about DA and to assist the dental community in better understanding of this variation in odontogenic tumor
