Ameloblastic fibrodentinoma (AFD) is a rare benign tumor usually interpreted as a neoplasm similar to ameloblastic fibroma (AF), characterized by formation of dysplastic dentin on histopathological diagnosis. Peripheral –type ameloblastic fibro-dentinoma (PAFD) is exceedingly rare, with all previously reported cases involving young patients. We here report a case of PAFD occurring in upper gingiva of an 11-year old male child, which was surgically incised.

Keywords :

Ameloblastic fibro-dentinoma; ameloblastic fibroma; peripheral –type ameloblastic fibrodentinoma.
