Ameloblastoma is a benign epithelial odontogenic tumor with many histological variants. Hemangiomatous ameloblastoma (HA) is a very rare variant which shows unique histopathological features varying from conventional ameloblastoma. We present a case of a 35-year-old female patient with a swelling over right lower back region of jaw, showing mixed radiolucent-opacity. Incisional biopsy showed microscopic features of desmoplastic ameloblastoma showing extensive desmoplasia and compressed odontogenic epithelial islands. Excisional biopsy revealed ameloblastomatous areas with extensive vascular component microscopically. Based on these findings, a diagnosis of HA was made.
