Ameloblastic Fibroma: Report of 3 Cases and Literature Review
Ameloblastic fibroma is a rare odontogenic tumour of the jaw, in which both the epithelial and ectomesenchymal elements are neoplastic and is commonly seen in the first 2 decades of life. The common clinical manifestation is a slow-growing swelling. Ameloblastic fibroma is most common in adolescents and young adults, and is generally found in the mandible. We report three cases of Ameloblastic fibroma which had appeared at different anatomic sites and had caused marked facial disfigurement.The controversy regarding its management needs to be emphasized due to the malignant transformation reported.Therefore detailed biological behaviour along with the current surgical pathologic issues of Ameloblastic fibroma would be discussed in the subsequent presentation.
