Desmoplasia and Osteoplasia in a Hybrid Ameloblastoma: A Case Report
Desmoplasia in ameloblastoma is comparatively a newer histopathologic variant of ameloblastoma. This variant is characterized by unusual histopathological features and marked stromal desmoplasia. The occurrence of osteoplasia is not frequently seen in ameloblastomas. Our present case is characterized by stromal desmoplasia and osteoplastic changes along with classical follicular, acanthomatous and basaloid differentiation in a tumour arising in a 28 year old female in the anterior region of the mandible.
