Ameloblastoma is a benign and locally aggressive epithelial odontogenic tumor, most commonly located in the mandible mainly in the
molar and the ramus region. It exhibits histological variation which includes follicular, acanthomatous, granular cell, desmoplastic,
basal cell, keratotic, calcifying, osteoplastic and ossifying types.
Desmoplastic Ameloblastoma is a rare variant of ameloblastoma with specific clinical, histological and radiological features.
Desmoplastic Ameloblastoma (DA) was first reported by Eversole et.al in 1984 as an unsual variant of ameloblastoma characterized
histologically by desmoplastic stroma.
