Ameloblastic fibroma (AF) is a tumor made of odontogenic epithelium and mesenchymal tissues and is therefore denominated a mixed odontogenic tumor. The most common clinical manifestation is slowly increasing swelling. We report a case of a four-year-old old girl with extensive AF of the mandible. Treatment was radical enucleation. Recent evidence suggests that AF has a high rate of recurrence and, in the some cases, malignant transformation. As a result, the monitoring of cases is indispensable. The patient in the present study continues to be in follow up and has been disease free for four years.
