Abstract

Adamantinoma is an odontogenic epithelial tumour, locally malignant, with a strong tendency to recur. Most frequently, in as many as 80% of cases, it develops in the mandible; in 16% it concerns the maxilla, usually the maxillary sinus; whilst the remaining 4% are a variation of peripheral adamantinoma located in the soft tissue. This paper presents a case of partial resection of the mandibular body due to the recurrence of adamantinoma with simultaneous reconstruction using an autogenic graft from the iliac ala stabilised with a reconstructive titanium plate.
