Basal cell ameloblastoma: a rare entity expressed in a middle-aged female
Rajesh Kumar, Aanchal Sharma and Hussain Sabir
Ameloblastoma is a true neoplasm of enamel organ type tissue which does not undergo differentiation to the point of enamel formation. It is a benign, locally invasive tumour of the oral cavity, most commonly affecting the maxilla and the mandible. Histologically there are several variants of ameloblastoma, the basal cell type being the least reported one. In this paper, we are presenting a case of basal cell ameloblastoma of the mandible with a brief review of literature.
