Peripheral ameloblastic fibro-odontoma or peripheral developing complex odontoma: report of a case
Authors: JESPER REIBEL1, ANNI B. GRØNBÆK2, SVEN POULSEN2
Background. Peripheral (extraosseous) odontogenic tumors are rare.
Case report. This report describes a case which illustrates the clinical and histopathological features of a lesion in an 8-year-old, healthy Caucasian girl that on purely morphological grounds would seem to be an ameloblastic fibro-odontoma, but may represent a case of a peripheral developing complex odontoma.
Conclusion. Conservative surgical enucleation of the lesion was followed by unbcomplicated healing and no recurrence was seen.
