Abstract

Ameloblastoma is a benign neoplasm derived from enamel organ having a high recurrence rate. Histopathologically, ameloblastomas exhibit proliferating odontogenic epithelium within a background of fibrous stroma. Several histologic subtypes of this tumor have been described. The desmoplastic variant was first described in detail by Eversole et al. although DA has been accepted as a distinct clinicopathologic entity; some researchers still regard it as a histologic variant of ameloblastoma. Because the clinical and histopathologic data concerning this tumor are limited, we report a new case of desmoplastic ameloblastoma in the interest of expanding on what is known about this uncommon lesion.
