Ameloblastic fibro-odontoma (AFO) is a rare mixed odontogenic tumor consisting of both ectodermal and mesenchymal components. It occurs predominantly in children and adolescents, especially in the mandibular posterior region. Histopathologically, AFO exhibits the combination of ameloblastic fibroma-like tissue and complex odontoma. A case of AFO in a 1-year-old child was presented. It produced an expansile lesion over the upper right anterior region and showed typical histopathological features of AFO. She was treated by enucleation with no recurrence observed after a follow-up period of 1 year.
