FIRST PARAGRAPH: Ameloblastomas are locally aggressive gnathic tumors that have a high propensity for recurrence. They are believed to arise from remnants of the odontogenic epithelium or the developing enamel organ. They occur in patients over a wide spectrum of ages and equally among the sexes, as a slow-growing, often asymptomatic, locally invasive tumor. Radiographic images usually demonstrate a multilocular, expansile radiolucency of bone, usually of the posterior mandible.
