Desmoplastic ameloblastoma Also called as adamantinoma, a true neoplasm of odontogenic epithelium, is a persistent and locally invasive tumor, it has aggressive but benign growth characteristics. The ameloblastoma represents about 1% of all oral odontogenic epithelial tumors and 11% of all odontogenic tumors. It is an aggressive neoplasm that arises from remnants of the dental lamina and dental organ (odontogenic epithelium). Ameloblastoma may be divided into the solid/multicystic type, the unicystic type, and desmoplastic type. The unicystic variant may develop as a single entity or may form from the epithelial lining of a dentigerous cyst called a mural (within the wall) forms of this neoplasm is well documented.
