A rare case of peripheral adenoid ameloblastoma with dentinoid

Published:September 06, 2022DOI:
      Adenoid ameloblastoma with dentinoid (AAD) is an extremely rare central neoplasm of the gnathic bones with no reported case of peripheral AAD. Adenoid ameloblastoma with dentinoid was first reported by Slabbert et al. in 1992 under the term “dentinoameloblastoma.” However, the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology introduced the name “adenoid ameloblastoma with dentinoid” in 1994. Histologically, AAD shows features of ameloblastoma and adenomatoid odontogenic tumor along with a calcified product resembling dentin. The biological behavior of central AAD is not well established, though, in the literature, several reports consider it to be among the more aggressive odontogenic neoplasms, with a propensity for local invasion and recurrence. The demographic characteristics, clinical features, behavior, and prognosis of the peripheral AAD (PAAD) are unknown. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of PAAD in a 62-year-old woman.
