Ameloblastoma is the second most common benign odontogenic tumour Shafer et al. 2006 which constitutes 1–3% of all cysts and tumours of jaw, with locally aggressive behaviour, high recurrence rate, and a malignant potential Chaine et al. 2009. Various treatment algorithms for ameloblastoma have been reported; however, a universally accepted approach remains unsettled and controversial Chaine et al. 2009. The treatment algorithm to be chosen depends on size Escande et al. 2009 and Sampson and Pogrel 1999, anatomical location Feinberg and Steinberg 1996, histologic variant Philipsen and Reichart 1998, and anatomical involvement Jackson et al. 1996. In this paper various such treatment modalities which include enucleation and peripheral osteotomy, partial maxillectomy, segmental resection and reconstruction done with fibula graft, and radical resection and reconstruction done with rib graft and their recurrence rate are reviewed with study of five cases.
