TORRES LAGARES, Daniel; INFANTE COSSIO, Pedro; HERNANDEZ GUISADO, José Mª  e  GUTIERREZ PEREZ, José Luis. Mandibular ameloblastoma: A review of the literature and presentation of six cases. Med. oral patol. oral cir. bucal (Ed.impr.) [online]. 2005, vol.10, n.3, pp.231-238. ISSN 1698-4447.

Ameloblastoma is a benign odontogenic tumour of epithelial origin without induction in the connective tissue. In treating this type of tumour, it is important to assess the clinical type (solid, multicystic, unicystic, peripheral), localisation, and size of the tumour as well as age of the patient. Articles have recently been published with the purpose of providing updated knowledge and therapeutic approaches to ameloblastoma. We present six cases of patients with localised mandibular ameloblastoma who were treated during the last seven years. We present data on clinical appearance, histological characteristics, and therapeutic approach that was used, which included excision of the lesion, perilesional drilling of the bone, or block resection, according to the type of ameloblastoma. Lastly, we analysed follow-up measures and the rate of recurrence in these patients. The aim of this paper is to review the concepts relating to ameloblastoma that have been published recently and to assess their influence on the clinical attitude taken when facing this pathology, using our experience with ameloblastoma as a starting point to illustrate this discussion.
