Ameloblastic fibro-odontoma is a rare, benign mixed odontogenic tumor. It occurs exclusively as an intraosseous lesion. It usually has a slow growth and is seen in children and young adults. A painless swelling is the most common clinical sign. Radiographically, ameloblastic fibro-odontoma appears as a circumscribed radiolucency which may contain radiopaque foci. Most cases of ameloblastic fibro-odontoma exhibit benign behavior, but cases of malignant transformation have been reported. The treatment modality in most cases involves conservative surgery, but cases with malignant transformation will require more radical treatment. A massive ameloblastic fibro-odontoma involving the maxilla has been described here with its clinical, radiological, and histopathological features.
