Retrospective Evaluation of Clinicopathologic Parameters on Various Ameloblastomas - An Eight Year Study (Original Research)

Dr Navajeevraj M N | Dr Bijumon CB [2] | Dr. Shameena .P .M

Abstract: Ameloblastoma may occur centrally within bone or peripherally without an intra-osseous component in the soft tissue overlying the alveolar ridge. These lesions are characterized by a slow growing painless swelling causing expansion of cortical bone, perforation of the cortical plates and infiltrarion of the soft tissues. The polymorphic nature of ameloblastoma is reflected by the variety of recognized histologic patterns in which they may appear. The follicular and the plexiform are the main histologic types. Variations in histomorphologic pattern do not appear to have a significant bearing on the biologic behavior or prognosis of these tumors with the exception of the unicystic and desmoplastic types. The purpose of this study is to determine the incidence of ameloblastomas with respect to clinical features and compare them with other reported series and to compare and correlate the histopathologic feature in various forms of ameloblastoma. The present study was conducted to analyse the clinical and pathological features of Ameloblastoma. The study population consisted of 34 histologically diagnosed cases of Ameloblastoma. They were then grouped into three namely conventional, unicystic and malignant type based upon the histological patterns. Clinical data were retrieved from the relevant files.
