Desmoplastic ameloblastoma. Clinical and histopathological diagnostic criteria

Maresi E., Tortorici S., Orlando E., Burruano F.


PDF  


A rare case of desmoplastic ameloblastoma observed in a 62-year old man presenting a swelling in the anterior mandible area with abnormal mobility of 33, 34, 43, 45, is described. Diagnosis of desmoplastic ameloblastoma was based on: anterior localization, radiopaque appearance, severe desmoplastic stroma and increasing infiltrate pattern of the tumor. The authors suggest to consider the desmoplastic histotype as a different nosological entity defined ''desmoplastic ameloblastoma'' since these clinical and histopathological features are missing in the other histologic variants of common ameloblastoma. A radical surgical treatment is suggested for this neoplasia.
