Ameloblastic Carcinoma with Diverse Histological Features: A Case Report

Srinivas Rao Ponnam, Gautam Srivastava, Sudhakar G

Abstract


Ameloblastic carcinoma is a rare tumor of jaws associated with aggressive behavior and poor prognosis. This lesion may develop directly from the remnants of odontogenic epithelium in the jaws (primary type) or may arise from malignant transformation of a benign odontogenic cyst or ameloblastoma (secondary type). The diagnosis of ameloblastic carcinoma is based on the demonstration of cytological atypia on microscopic examination. In the current case report, we present a case of ameloblastic carcinoma showing diverse histopathological features in the epithelial component of the lesion.
