The ameloblastoma is a slowly growing, locally invasive, benign epithelial odontogenic neoplasm of the jaws with a high rate of recurrence if not removed adequately. We report an interesting case of granular cell ameloblastoma, which presented as a solitary, peripheral, soft tissue growth 20 years after initial segmental resection of the left mandible. The basal layer of oral mucosa could be the possible source of peripheral ameloblastoma in our case. In order to reduce the chances of recurrence, we suggest to incorporate mucosal stripping along with the conventional treatment as a mandatory rather than an elective procedure while treating ameloblastoma.
