Abstract

An uncommon case of a patient with recurrent mandibular ameloblastoma involving various adjacent soft tissues is presented with plain film radiography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging(MRI) and bone scan. The tumor involved mandible and eroded several bones including foramen ovale. This case shows that although an ameloblastoma primarily affect mandible, exact radiographic evaluation of tumor extent will assist the surgeon in the progress of rational approaches to the management of ameloblastoma.
