Abstract

A case initially thought to be ameloblastoma of the mandible which showed rapid local destruction and was demonstrated to have three pulmonary metastases post mortem 18 months after the first symptoms in the mandible. The diagnosis is now considered to be ameloblastic carcinoma. The difficulties in histological diagnosis and varying classifications of malignant odontogenic tumours is noted.
