Ameloblastomas are rare benign tumours. Their management can be a contentious issue due to the high risk of recurrence in some histological subtypes. We present a case of a 16-year-old boy with an ameloblastoma of his right body and ramus of the mandible. Presentation, surgical work-up and management are discussed.
