Ameloblastoma traditionally occurs in the 3rd and 4th decade, usually in the body of mandible (molar region) but in recent literature their occurrence in young individuals have been reported. It is a benign locally invasive epithelial odontogenic tumour comprising 1% of all tumours and cysts arising in the jaw. In this report, we present a case of unicystic ameloblastoma (non dentigerous variant) in a young girl of 18 years. A detailed history, clinical, radiographic features and histopathology and treatment of the case is discussed here. It highlights the variations in presenting features especially the young age of the Indian girl.
