Ameloblastic fibroma is a rare mixed odontogenic tumor mostly occurring in the posterior region of the mandible. The peripheral variant is very rare and to the best of our knowledge, only three cases have been reported in the English literature. In this report, we describe a case of peripheral ameloblastic fibroma in a 54-year-old woman with two years of follow-up. Keywords ● Ameloblastic fibroma  ● Gingiva  ● Peripheral
