Ameloblastoma is a benign but locally invasive neoplasm of odontogenic epithelium. Patients usually present late after the tumor achieves considerable size to cause facial disfigurement. Diagnosis made mainly from tissue biopsy. The challenges in the management of this tumor are to provide complete excision as recurrence rate is high. Reconstruct the bony defect in order to give reasonable cosmetic and functional outcome to the patient.
