The patient 19s clinical chart as well as preoperative and postoperative radiographs and histological findings of a 20-year old man that addressed Dental Clinic at University of L 19Aquila were thoroughly reviewed. The patient showed a swelling in the oral cavity and radiographic feature of a radiolucent lesion at left second premolar maxillary site. Histologic examination made diagnosis of AFO. AFO is a rare mixed odontogenic tumor with similarities to the ameloblastic fibroma (AF) and ameloblastic dentinoma.
