Ameloblastoma is a locally aggressive neoplasm with varied histological patterns. The histomorphologic variants of ameloblastoma bear no prognostic or biologic behavioral significance with possible exceptions of desmoplastic and hemangioameloblastoma. The present paper aims at reporting a case of 38-year-old male with a huge lesion present in the mandibular symphysial region crossing the midline, histopathologically showing hemangiomatous component in follicular and plexiform ameloblastoma along with spindle cell differentiation in the ameloblastic follicles. Spindle cell differentiation in ameloblastoma is rarely reported and the prognostic significance is yet not clear. The present paper also reviews the literature since the diagnosis of this lesion is must as it may lead to surgical complications.
