14 the follicular and plexiform
patterns of ameloblastoma have similar growth patterns, metastasis and locally invasive but their recurrent rates are different.
i]-weighted image: juxtaarticular plexiform
neurofibroma (arrowhead) with massive invasion of the right sacroiliac joint and soft tissue.
Follicular and plexiform
ameloblastomas are the most common histological variants and account for 32.

19) Macroglossia, abnormal formations in the tongue, pharynx, larynx (2) and even supraglottic plexiform
fibromas (5) may prevent endotracheal intubation (2,19) and determine upper airway obstruction during anaesthetic induction.
The Grade V lesion, otherwise known as the plexiform
lesion, remains the pathologic hallmark of clinical PH, and a variety of hypotheses have been offered to explain its pathogenesis.
All cases were histologically classified, being divided into follicular (33%), plexiform
(22%), association between plexiform
and follicular (96%), unicystic with mural proliferation (22%), unicystic with luminal proliferation (11%), and unicystic with intraluminal proliferation (6%).
Schwannoma (Figure 5) is typically an eccentric mass involving one plexus component while plexiform
neurofibromas (Figure 6) are usually multiple and may diffusely enlarge many components of the plexus.
Histopathological findings were suggestive of unicystic plexiform
ameloblastoma (figure 7).
In big magnifications the cellular elements of the connective tissue are visible well located between chaotic plexiform
fibers and single muscular bundles (Figure 2).
