• Ameloblastoma is a rare epithelial neoplasm that most commonly is found within the bony structure of the jaw. Soft tissue ameloblastomas are rarer. Only nine well-documented cases are found in the reviewed world's literature. It is our purpose to report the clinical and morphological features of a gingival ameloblastoma in a 92-year-old-woman.
