Ameloblastic fibroma is a rare mixed odontogenic tumor of the jaw comprising 2.5% of all odontogenic tumors. It is most commonly seen in young adults as a gradually increasing swelling in the jaw. Treatment considered is meticulous enucleation and curettage of surrounding bone. This study presents a case of ameloblastic fibroma in a 15-year-old female patient with a swelling on the right side of the mandible which was managed by enucleation and curettage.
