Ameloblastoma is a benign odontogenic neoplasm which frequently affects the mandible. The term ameloblastoma includes several clinicoradiological and histological types. Unicystic ameloblastoma is a less common type of ameloblastoma. Unicystic ameloblastoma has many clinical, gross features and radiographic features similar to a jaw cyst but on histologic examination shows a typical ameloblastomatous epithelium lining the cyst cavity, with or without luminal and/or mural tumor proliferation. Since there is lot of confusion between unicystic ameloblastoma and dentigerous cyst, the biologic behaviour of this tumor group was reviewed. Since recurrence of a tumor can occur over a delayed period of life, regular follow up is essential in management. Hereby we report an unusual case of unicystic ameloblastoma in a 50-year-old female patient.

Keywords: Unicystic, Ameloblastoma, Odontogenic neoplasm.
