GRANULAR CELL AMELOBLASTOMA

Dr. Kanupriya Gupta

Abstract


Granular cell ameloblastoma is an uncommon variant of ameloblastoma, which is clinically aggressive and histopathologically has numerous large eosinophilic granular cells. These cells usually form the central mass of the epithelial tumor islands and cords. The clinical, radiographical and histopathological features of this tumor with its biological behavior are discussed.

Keywords
