ameloblastic fibroma

A benign, usually solid, rarely cystic tumour primarily of children and adolescents, composed of strands and buds of ameloblastoma-like epithelial cells in a dense, cell-free connective tissue stroma. Mitoses are rare. Multiple sections are needed to exclude dentine which, if present, would designate the lesion ameloblastic fibro-dentinoma.
