Ameloblastomas do not generally show evidence of induction, however rare cases associated with odontome have been reported and are referred to as odontoameloblastoma. This article presents an unusual case of multiple histopathological variants of ameloblastoma with evidence of induction of dentinoid by tumor cells but without concomitant formation of enamel along with features of ghost cells. The lesion occurred on the left side of the maxilla in a 31-year old female. Case management has been described and implications are discussed.
