Abstract

MARTINEZ-REVILLA, Begoña; ELIZONDO-LAZKANO, Xabier; MOSQUEDA-TAYLOR, Adalberto  and  AGUIRRE-URIZAR, José Manuel. Desmoplastic ameloblastoma with cystic predominance: presentation of a clinical case. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2016, vol.38, n.3, pp.155-158. ISSN 2173-9161.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.maxilo.2014.03.005.

Ameloblastoma is an odontogenic neoplasm with locally aggressive behavior. Some variants, like the unicystic or desmoplastic, have a better prognosis than solid/multicystic. The case is presented of a 76 year-old male, who suffered a mandibular interradicular radiolucent lesion of cystic appearance, which was surgically enucleated. Histologically, this was a desmoplastic lesion that exhibited a predominantly cystic area which was diagnosed as a desmoplastic ameloblastoma with cystic predominance. After 30 months of follow-up there are no signs of recurrence. The most important clinical and pathological features of these conditions are also discussed.

Keywords : Ameloblastoma; Desmoplastic; Unicystic; Interradicular.
