Abstract

Ameloblastic fibro-odontoma is an extremely rare odontogenic tumor composed of proliferating ectodermal and mesenchymal components of odontogenic tissue, containing hard tooth structure. It occurs predominantly in children and young adults. The mandibular molarramus area is the most frequently observed location, presenting radiographically as a well-circumscribed and radiolucent-radiopaque tumor. A case involving a 24-year-old woman presenting with a large ameloblastic fibro-odontoma of the posterior mandible is reported. This case is of radiologic interest because two distinct calcification patterns were observed.
