Ameloblastic fibro-odontoma is a rare benign mixed odontogenic tumor exhibiting the histologic characteristics of ameloblastic fibroma and complex odontoma. Clinically, it represents a well-defined asymptomatic swelling with deformity of face, and radiographically a well-defined radiolucent area, which contains radiopaque foci of various sizes and shapes. These features overlap with other lesions such as calcifying odontogenic cyst, calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor, and adenomatoid odontogenic tumor which makes a diagnostic dilemma for oral clinicians. Hereby we report such a rare case in a 7-year-old boy.
