AMELOBLASTOMA: CLINICAL FEATURES, RADIOLOGY AND TREATMENT
AUTHOR: Sanketh DS, MDS
Ameloblastoma, is the most common, clinically significant odontogenic tumor. It was known to be the second most common odontogenic tumor after odontoma, but is now increasingly thought to be the most common especially in Asia and Africa. In fact recent studies show ameloblastoma to be the most common odontogenic tumor in India (Sriram and Shetty (2008), Deepthi et al (2016), Nalabolu et al(2016)).
This tumor was called adamantinoma in the early 1900’s and the name was subsequently changed to ameloblastoma in 1930.
