Abstract

Desmoplastic variant of ameloblastoma is rare. The surgical extirpation of ameloblastoma in mandible is challenging. Furthermore, the airway adequacy is crucial, both during and after mandibulectomy. The surgical reconstruction outcome has been satisfactory up to 12 months post surgery. Nonetheless, recurrence is possible and therefore frequent follow up is needed.
