The patient had a tumor diagnosed previously as benign ameloblastic fibroma that underwent transformation to ameloblastic odontosarcoma. The patient has been followed for 19 years since the surgical removal of the tumor. Radiographic and clinical examination confirm that there is no evidence of recurrence. Periodic examination for the reappearance of the tumor will be continued.
