While they are classified according to the histopathological variants as follicular, plexiform, acanthomatous and granular cell types, followed by basal cell ameloblastoma, desmoplastic and clear cell variants, which are the uncommon forms of ameloblastoma according to its histological picture.5 These categories of ameloblastoma are put into different categories on the basis of age when presented site, clinical behaviour and radiographic features and prognosis.6 Peripheral ameloblastoma are formed outside the bone and are slow growing pedunculated or sessile mass with no involvement of the underlying bone and appears on the gingiva and alveolar mucosa and intraosseous ameloblastoma arise in the jaw bone.7
