Abstract

Peripheral ameloblastoma is a rare odontogenic tumour with very little bony involvement and good prognosis after surgical excision. The nonspecific clinical picture of the condition can lead to error in diagnosing this odontogenic tumour.
The proper diagnosis of this entity is significant in its pathogenesis and potential recurrence if treated like other similar pathologies. This paper reports a case of peripheral ameloblastoma of the mandibular alveolar region with a brief review of literature.
