The recently recognized desmoplastic ameloblastoma is considered a rare variant of central ameloblastoma. It has been included in the World Health Organization's histopathological typing of odontogenic tumors, similar to benign, locally invasive tumors with low recurrence rate and peculiar histological features, characterized by epithelial changes due to the pressure of stroma on epithelial tissue. The aim of this paper is to report a unique case of desmoplastic ameloblastoma in the mandible of a 21-year-old male with a painless swelling in the anterior region of the maxilla. To our knowledge, only a few cases of adult patients affected by desmoplastic ameloblastoma have been published.
