Discretion⚠️Ameloblastoma⚠️💀🔪

Ameloblastoma Is a rare, noncancerous A (benign) tumor that develops most often in the jaw near the molars. Ameloblastoma begins in the cells that form the protective enamel ning on the teeth Ameloblastoma can be very aggressive, growing into the jawbone and causing swelling and pain. Very rarely, ameloblastoma cells can spread to other areas of the body, such as the lymph nodes in the neck and the lungs. Biopsy is needed to confirm diagnosis. The current mainstay of treatment is wide local excision with appropriate margins and immediate reconstruction Photographs of a patient. A, A woman with a massive maxillary ameloblastoma. B, The resection includes a total left maxillectomy, including the orbital floor, and a partial right maxillectomy, sparing the right orbital floor and region of the malar eminence. C, A fibula osteocutaneous free flap was used to reconstruct this bilateral maxillectomy defect, along with a bone graft secured by titanium mesh, which was used to reconstruct the left orbital floor.
