Abstract

Ameloblastic fibro-odontoma (AFO) is a benign tumor that displays properties of both ameloblastic fibroma and compound odontoma. Often, AFO presents clinically as a hamartoma or immature odontoma; however, the tumor can also present with progressive growth causing bone destruction and significant deformity, acting more like a true neoplasm. We report a case of a locally aggressive AFO in the posterior maxilla of a 7-year-old girl and discuss the clinical, radiographic, histopathologic, and conservative therapeutic approach to this locally aggressive tumor.
