Abstract

Ameloblastomas are the most common benign tumors of odontogenic origin. They primarily occur in adults, with a minority occurring in the pediatric population (aged 18 and younger). Although imaging can suggest a diagnosis of ameloblastoma, they may be difficult to differentiate from other tumors or cysts of the maxillofacial skeleton and require histopathologic diagnosis. Treatment of these tumors in children is complex owing to the growing craniofacial skeleton. However, inadequate treatment results in a high recurrence rate. This paper reviews the epidemiology, histopathology, and treatment options for children with ameloblastoma.
