Peripheral ameloblastoma, also called as extraosseous ameloblastoma is a rare variant of ameloblastoma. It comprises of 2-10% of all ameloblastomas. This lesion can be mistaken for any other peripheral lesion both clinically and radiographically. Hence a correlation between the clinical, radiographical and histopathological findings is inevitable. Herewith we present a case of peripheral ameloblastoma in a 47-year-old male patient affecting the lingual alveolar mucosa of the mandibular region with complete clinical, radiological and histopathological details.

Keywords: Gingiva, Ameloblastoma, Odontogenic Tumors.
