Abstract: Unicystic ameloblastoma (UA) are cystic lesions that shows clinical, radiographic and gross features similar to a mandibular cyst, and can be definitely diagnosed only with the help of histopathological examination. They usually present as a painless, slowly enlarging swelling which commonly occurs in mandible and accounts for approximately 1 % of all oral tumors. Though its recurrence rate is low, it may recur after a long time period which necessitates the need for long term follow up. Here we present a case of unicystic mural ameloblastoma in a 45 years old female patient who was treated with surgical enucleation.
