Abstract

Ameloblastic carcinoma is a rare malignant odontogenic carcinoma that has metastatic potential, and because of its rare incidence, there are few reports focusing on its radiologic imaging. If it shows aggressive appearances, it can be diagnosed as malignant tumor. But in case of negative appearance, it is difficult to distinguish ameloblastic carcinoma from ameloblastoma. We report a case of ameloblastic carcinoma of the maxilla in a 76-year-old female patient with radiologic images and pathologic features.
