Abstract

Ameloblastic fibro-odontoma is a relatively rare, benign odontogenic tumor that usually occurs in children and adolescents with unerupted teeth. This article reports an ameloblastic fibro-odontoma in the anterior mandible as a “bump on her gum” in a 7-month-old girl. This is the first case under 9 months old reported to date. Radiographic and histologic findings as well as the treatment are discussed. Keywords ● Mandibular Disease  ● Odontogenic tumor ● Jaw neoplasm
