Ameloblastoma is an odontogenic tumour derived from the remnants of odontogenic epithelium. Ameloblastoma shows versatile clinical and histological variants. Basal cell ameloblastoma is a rare variant among all histopathological variants of ameloblastoma. We present a case of a 25-year-old male patient with painless swelling on the lower left side of the face for 1 year, which had gradually increased in size and histologically showed features of basal cell ameloblastoma. The aim of the present paper is to understand this rare variant of ameloblastoma and review the literature.
