ARGANDONA POZO, J.  and  ESPINOZA, J.. Single cyst ameloblastoma, basis of conservative treatment: Presentation of a clinical case and update of the literature. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2010, vol.32, n.2, pp.88-91. ISSN 2173-9161.

The ameloblastoma it's defined as a localy aggressive neoplasm with a high incidence to local recurrence. This aggressive behaviour gives two options: a conservative treatment or a radical one, with all the functional, aesthetic and psychological alterations this implies. The unicyst ameloblastoma it's described as a disease with particular morphological aspects, a less aggressive biological behaviour than the common ameloblastoma, and less chances to reappear after a conservative treatment. Here we present a case of unicyst ameloblastoma treated in a conservative way by decompresion and resection. A review of the actual treatment methods.

Keywords : Unicyst ameloblastoma; Decompresion; Conservative treatment.
