Hybrid ameloblastoma lesions were first described by Waldron and El-Mofty [ 13 ] as a tumor variant in which areas of follicular and plexiform ameloblastoma coexist with amelovlastoma that are characteristic of DA.

In the present study, we describe a novel case of hybrid ameloblastoma and present a concise review in the scientific literature to summarize the clinicopathologic characteristics ameloglastoma hybrid ameloblastoma. In view of the paucity of DA case series and the only limited understanding of its biologic behavior and prognosis, the proper treatment strategies for DA are not entirely defined so far. The latter study stated that the origin of hybrid lesions is unclear and therefore it remains unknown if DA develops from conventional ameloblastoma, conventional ameloblastoma develops from DA, or hybrid ameloblastoma is a kind desmoplastix collision tumor.

This makes the radiological differentiation of these two lesions challenging in many cases. The presence of osteoplastic bone can also present similarly. Involved teeth may desmopalstic displaced with cortical plate expansion. Race The incidence of DA among ameloblastomas ranges from 0.

Patient complained of pain and tumor mass had areas of bleeding and scar formation due to accidental trauma by opposing maxillary tooth. This is in contrast to the conventional ameloblastoma which is found predominantly in the posterior region of mandible.
