Abstract

Peripheral ameloblastoma (PA) is a rare variant of ameloblastoma that generally occurs in extraosseous regions. The lesion accounts for approximately 1–5 % of all cases of ameloblastoma and occurs mainly in middle age. This article reports a case of peripheral follicular ameloblastoma in a 58-year-old male which presented as a painless growth in the mandibular anterior gingiva. Clinical and histopathological features of this lesion are discussed.
