Abstract

According to the WHO (2005) classification of odontogenic tumors, Desmoplastic Ameloblastoma is recognized as a variant of ameloblastoma. This rare entity differs from the other forms of ameloblastoma in its anatomical location, morphology, and radiographic appearance. Due to its unusual clinic-pathological presentation, this tumor mimics various odontogenic as well as non odontogenic neoplasms. We are presenting a rare case of desmoplastic ameloblastoma in the maxilla in a 53 year old male with regards to its clinical and radiographical and histological viewpoints.
