A digital manual for the early diagnosis of oral neoplasia
Ameloblastic fibroma is a neoplasm of odontogenic origin characterized by the proliferation of both epithelial and mesenchymal tissue without the formation of enamel or dentin.
Radiographic features are similar to those of simple ameloblastoma, but exhibit a slower clinical growth and occur most frequently in young adults. Treatment is enucleation and curettage.
Ameloblastic fibrosarcoma is the malignant counterpart of ameloblastic fibroma where the mesenchymal element is malignant. This tumour is painful and grows rapidly.
