原始语种摘要: ABSTRACTAmeloblastoma is a slow growing odontogenic epithelial tumor of the jaw, however maxillary ameloblastoma is a rare histopathological entity. This tumor arises from odontogenic epithelium of embryonal tooth element and is most frequent in the mandibular molar region, with only 20% occurring in the maxilla. Of the various histological patterns of ameloblas-toma, the granular cell type is extremely rare, accounting for 4% of all reported cases of ameloblastomas. We report a rare case of multicystic granular cell ameloblastoma of maxilla in a 15 years old male patient who presented clinically as slow growing painful swelling on left side of the face. Histological examination of the excised tumor revealed islands comprising of cells with extensive granular cell transformation,...
