  • Abstract

    Ameloblastoma (AM) is a very rare odontogenic tumor of the oral cavity, with different histologic variants. One of the types of AM is desmoplastic AM (DA) which has 4–5% of incidence. Here, we review and reported that DA is the least of the occurrence of all the variants of AM. The uniqueness of this lesion can be further enlightened with respect to its site of occurrence, the radiographic feature, and the histological appearance different from the classical type of AM. This case report focuses on DA that occurred in the maxilla of 35-year-old women and explains about clinical, radiographic findings, histopathologic findings, and treatment plan. The patient is undergoing routine follow-up and is presently free of disease. From this case, the clinicians should remember to consider DA as differential diagnosis, if a patient complaints of swelling in and around the premolar region of maxilla.
