 > Abstract 


Metastasizing ameloblastoma (MA) is a very rare odontogenic tumor with 2% of incidence rate. It exhibits benign histopathological features and malignant intrinsic quality in the form of metastasis which makes it a little more than a pathological curiosity. Various molecular aspects related with malignant behavior have been discussed. Because of this, it provides a diagnostic challenge for clinicians and surgeons. It is an elusive lesion which should be more researched and studied so that definitive diagnostic features can be put forward. The objective of this paper is to review the molecular aspect involved in the pathogenesis of MA which will aid in differentiating non-MA from MA and thus helping in providing proper treatment at an early stage.

Keywords: Metastasizing ameloblastoma, nonmetastasizing ameloblastoma, odontogenic tumor
