Medical University Erstwhile K. E-mail: ni. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. According to the World Health Organization, ameloblastomas are classified into the following types: conventional, unicystic, and peripheral.

We report a case of young female with a radiolucent lesion in the right posterior mandible. Surgical removal of the lesion was performed, with differential diagnosis of a radicular cyst.

However, histopathologic examination revealed UA. The patient was kept under observation and showed signs of local bone regeneration. The purpose of presenting this report of a clinical case of UA previously misdiagnosed as radicular cyst is to emphasize the significance of histopathologic examination of all tissue specimens recovered in surgery even when clinical and radiological finding are innocuous. The most common tumor of odontogenic origin is ameloblastoma which develops from epithelial cellular elements and dental tissues in various phases of development.

It appears more frequently in the second or third decade with no sexual or racial predilection. It is almost exclusively encountered asymptomatically in the posterior mandible. This report highlights the importance of histopathologic analysis of any pathology in jaws even if it seems innocuous in clinical as well as radiological examination.

CASE REPORT A year-old female reported in the outpatient department with the chief complaint of an asymptomatic bony hard swelling in respect to the right posterior mandible, which gradually increased in size in the past 3 years to attain the present size of concern.

Dental and medical history was insignificant. Overlying skin was normal in color, texture and consistency and was not adherent to the underlying swelling. Intraoral examination revealed a painless swelling in the right posterior mandibular vestibule from right mandibular second premolar to the distal aspect of second molar on the same side.

The swelling was firm and covered by normal mucous membrane [ Figure 1 ]. In place of the right mandibular first molar, only root stumps were present, but molar and premolar adjacent to it tested vital.
