ABSTRACT El ameloblastoma es un tumor odontógeno benigno de derivación epitelial, de elevada invasión local, crecimiento intermitente y con alta probabilidad de recidiva. Puede dividirse en los siguientes tipos histológicos: folicular, plexiforme, acantomatoso, a células basales y , granulares. El ameloblastoma folicular es el subtipo histológico más común. Se manifiesta prevalentemente durante la tercera, cuarta y quinta década de vida, sin predilección para el sexo, aun así se puede encontrar en cualquier grupo de edad incluyendo niños. La mayoría de los ameloblastomas se encuentra sobre todo en mandíbula (al nivel del ángulo y rama). Las características clínicas, incluso si complementadas con radiografías y muestras histológicas, no son útiles a la hora de predeterminar el comportamiento biológico y por lo tanto el pronóstico de un ameloblastoma individual. Los autores presentan un caso localizado de ameloblastoma plexiforme localizado en la parte posterior del maxilar de un hombre de 30 años; el término "plexiforme" se refiere al aspecto de anastomosis de los islotes del epitelio odontógeno, en contraste con el tipo "folicular". En este artículo se discuten importantes aspectos de la patología, del tratamiento quirúrgico y protésico. En conclusión, es necesaria una cooperación estricta a largo plazo de un grupo de clínicos, patólogos, cirujanos y prostodoncistas, para ofrecer el mejor tratamiento individualizado en cada caso.

    ABSTRACT: Ninety-one patients with ameloblastoma of the mandible were studied. Among the 23 patients treated with radical surgery the recurrence rate was 8.7%, whereas the rate of 45.65% in the 68 conservatively treated patients. The prognoses of the patients treated by conservative surgery were analyzed based on the histologic and radiologic criteria of each lesion. The recurrence rate was significantly higher in the follicular type (56.8%) than in the plexiform type (32.3%). Recurrence was seen more frequently in the multilocular or soap bubble type (60.7%) than in the unilocular type (35.0%). When the recurrence rate was compared between patients aged less than 20 years and patients aged greater than or equal to 20 years, younger patients had better prognoses. It was concluded that there is a prognostic value in the histologic, radiographic, and age factors.

    ABSTRACT: A number of important factors must be considered in planning the treatment of ameloblastoma. It is essential to distinguish among the three clinical types of ameloblastoma--the intraosseous solid or multicystic lesion, the well-circumscribed unicystic type, and the rare peripheral (extraosseous) ameloblastoma--because they require different forms of treatment. Unicystic ameloblastomas in which the tumor extends into the lumen of the cyst or involves only the cystic lining can be expected to be removed completely by enucleation. This approach, however, is inadequate if the tumor has invaded the periphery of the fibrous connective tissue wall. Ameloblastomas may invade the intertrabecular spaces of cancellous bone but do not invade compact bone, although they may erode it. Ameloblastomas in the posterior part of the maxilla should be treated more extensively than similar lesions in the mandible because of the proximity of the posterior maxilla to vital structures and the difficulty in treating any recurrences. This article discusses the treatment of ameloblastoma based on these pathologic and anatomic considerations and includes brief discussions of the role of cautery, cryotherapy, and radiotherapy.

    ABSTRACT: All the 49 jaw ameloblastomas reported to the Swedish Cancer Registry during the period 1958–1971 were re-examined, using the histopathologic criteria of odontogenic tumors adopted by WHO. Thirty-one cases (63.6%) fulfilled the criteria of simple ameloblastoma, whereas 12 cases were found to be other benign lesions and 6 to be malignant tumors other than ameloblastoma. The relationship between simple ameloblastoma, malignant ameloblastoma and other epithelial jaw tumors is discussed.
