Ameloblastic fibrosarcoma: a rare malignant odontogenic tumor.

This study reinforces the necessity of treating AFS with an aggressive surgical approach, with no need for other complementary therapies. J Oral Pathol Med. Therefore, their role in early diagnosis of diseases especially malignancies is crucial. A case report and a review of the literature.

Maxillary lesions tend to show antral involvement with apparent erosion of the sinus walls and a propensity to invade adjacent soft tissues, the base of the cranium and intracranial and orbital tissues 1262 Microscopically, the bland epithelial component of AFS is similar to that seen in ameloblastic fibroma, although it is frequently less prominent. Verh Dtsch Amelobkastic Pathol ; Those lesions arising from an AF tend to occur in patients aged approximately a decade older than those arising de novo [ 10 ].

The mean age at the time of diagnosis of AFS for 62 cases reviewed by Bregni et al.

The differential diagnosis includes other odontogenic sarcomas, ameloblastic carcinosarcoma and spindle cell carcinoma.

International histological classification of tumours: Beitrage zur Lehre von den Adamantinomen. There were foci of necrosis near the epithelial islands.

He complained of continuous dull pain in the upper left region of his face from 2 months ago and visual disturbances in recent weeks. Studies regarding p63 and p16 on the pathogenesis of AFS are apparently elusive.


Postoperative chemotherapy and radiotherapy has been used successfully in a few reported cases.

Acta Med Scand ; Ameloblastic fibrosarcoma or odontogenic carcinosarcoma: Abstract Ameloblastic fibrosarcoma AFS is a rare malignant mixed odontogenic tumor which is usually considered as the malignant counterpart of ameloblastic fibroma.

Ameloblastic carcinosarcoma of the mandible arising in ameloblastic fibroma: Semin Diagn Pathol ; Immunohistochemical studies may facilitate diagnosis of these lesions, given that Ki, PCNA and p53 were found expressed at higher levels within the sarcomatous component of the AFS, whereas they are absent or expressed at lower levels in AF 51262697989, No other intra- or extra-oral sign was observed; firosarcoma remaining head and neck examination and general physical evaluation were unremarkable and no significant event was noted in the medical history.

Intraoral view shows buccal and palatal expansion in the left maxillary region and the exophytic ulcerated mass. Radiographically, the tumor usually shows a destructive radiolucent pattern with ill-defined borders suggestive of malignancy. Histological typing of odontogenic tumors, jaw cysts, and allied lesions. As a negative control, primary antibodies were replaced with phosphate-buffered saline.

Histopathological examination showed the same biphasic tumor previously described. The pathogenesis of the odontogenic tumors. As expected, the pain persisted and healing of the extraction site was not normal. Our patient presented an AFS in the posterior mandible. However, sometimes, it is seriously difficult to differentiate AFS, especially low-grade tumors from ameloblastic fibroma. J Maxillofac Surg ;1: Most epithelial cells had small numbers of Kipositive cells Failure to correctly evaluate the panoramic radiographs and establish a clinical differential diagnosis by the general practitioner should be given special attention.

Maryam Khalili 1 and Pouyan Amini Shakib 2. Intraoral examination and a CT scan evaluation b revealed no evidence of recurrence after two years. Finally, sections were counterstained with Harris hematoxylin. A case fibroswrcoma malignant odontogenic mixed tumor.

When Ki was quantified, positivity rates ranged from Adamantinosarcoma of the maxilla. Although AFS was first described years ago, information about its epidemiology, treatment, predictive factors and expected outcomes is very limited, and is based mainly on case reports 91011 Therefore, also considering epithelial component, the diagnosis based on histopathological examination was not a serious problem.

A year-old man, educated in a,eloblastic engineering field, from a city in North of Iran was referred to School of Dentistry of Tehran University of Medical Sciences by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon OMFS for oral pathology consultation in winter of This is an open-access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License.
