AbstractAmeloblastomas are rare tumours of the jaw. They are usually asymptomatic so, generally, present late. Treatment is predominantly surgical, although some controversy exists over the choice of radical or conservative surgery. A 79-year-old woman presented to the Prince of Wales Hospital, Chinese University of Hong Kong, unable to eat because of a massive mandibular ameloblastoma that had grown over a decade. The lesion was excised and the mandible was reconstructed with a reconstruction plate. The patient made a good recovery and was able to eat a soft diet.
