Granular Cell Ameloblastoma: A Case Report
Granular cell ameloblastoma is a rare condition, accounting for 3.5% of all ameloblastoma cases. The granular cell ameloblastoma, in most instances is found as an admixture with other histologic patterns, particularly the follicular subtype. A 58 year old male patient reported with a swelling in the lower left posterior region of the face since 2 years. Orthopantomograph showed radiolucency extending from lower left central incisor to retromolar area with compartmented appearance. Histopathologically, diagnosis of granular cell ameloblastoma of the excised specimen was made. Follow-up data suggest that the presence of granular cells in an ameloblastoma might be of some prognostic significance in terms of initial treatment performed.
