Ameloblastoma are benign tumors whose importance lies in its potential to grow into enormous size with resulting bone deformity. They are typically classified as unicystic, multicystic, peripheral, and malignant subtypes. Unicystic ameloblastoma (UA) refers to those cystic lesions that show clinical, radiographic, or gross features of an odontogenic cyst but on histological examination show a typical ameloblastomatous epithelium lining, with or without luminal and/or mural tumor growth. We present a very rare case of unicystic ameloblastoma in a girl child with an age of 10 years; clinical and radiographic features of UCA, its differential diagnosis, histopathology, and current concepts of management have also been discussed in the present paper.
