Abstract

It is unusual for odontogenic tumours such as ameloblastoma to occur in the infratemporal fossa. Although these odontogenic tumours usually arise in jaws, they can infiltrate into the infratemporal region, pterygomaxillary space or fissure, invading soft tissues by way of extension. A case of recurrent ameloblastoma in the infratemporal fossa region arising from an extension of the lesion from the site of previous occurrence in the right mandibular body is reported.
