Abstract

Ameloblastoma is a neoplasm of odontogenic epithelium, especially of enamel organ-type tissue that has not undergone differentiation to the point of hard tissue formation. Granular cell ameloblastoma is a rare condition, accounting for 3.5% of all ameloblastoma. Furthermore, this histologic subtype is considered to be controversial in its potential of recurrence after surgical treatment because cases of recurrence have been described in which the secondary tumor was more aggressive. This article is aimed at portaying a case report of granular cell variant of ameloblastoma affecting a 48-year old male.

Keywords: Ameloblastoma, Granular Cell Odontogenic Tumor, Lysosome like organelles.
