Ameloblastic fibro-odontoma is a rare, mixed, benign, odontogenic tumor of significant prevalence in the mandible, with epithelial and mesenchymal components. It usually affects pediatric patients and is associated with teeth, causing a delay in eruption chronology or an alteration in the dental eruption pathway. It is occasionally diagnosed during radiographic evaluations of these patients. The literature is unclear whether it is a distinct pathological entity or a stage of odontoma. As it is benign and has a low recurrence rate, conservative treatment is recommended. The purpose of this paper was to present 2 cases of ameloblastic fibro-odontoma in the mandibles of children.
