Akinyamoju AO, Olusanya AA, Adeyemi BF, Kolude B - J Oral Maxillofac Pathol (2013)

Bottom Line: Ameloblastic fibrosarcoma (AFS) is a rare odontogenic malignancy with benign epithelial and malignant ectomesenchymal components.About 66 cases have been reported in the medical literature.We therefore report an additional case as well as a review of literature to add to the existing knowledge on this rare lesion.

Figure 2: A computerized tomography scan which shows an isodense area that has eroded the antral walls and destroyed the maxilla

Mentions: Computerized tomography scan showed a well-defined, homogenous, isodense mass filling the right maxillary antrum with erosion of the lateral, posterior and anterior walls. The mass also extends to the floor of the right orbit, displacing it upwards without perforating it. The adjacent ethmoidal air cells and nasal cavity were invaded by the lesion [Figure 2].
