Ameloblastoma is a true neoplasm of odontogenic epithelium. It is a benign, persistent, aggressive, locally invasive tumor, capable of increasing in size and eroding bone. Unicystic ameloblastoma (UA) is a rare odontogenic tumor, which has unique clinical, radiographic, and histologic features of jaw tumors. The lesion histologically shows typical ameloblastomatous epithelium lining part of the cystic cavity with or without and/or mural tumor growth. This article reports a rare case of UA presenting as a multilocular lesion of a mandible in a 60-year-old female patient.
