Abstract: Ameloblastic carcinoma (AC) is a rare tumour which can emerge de novo or from an ameloblastoma. To our knowledge, malignant transformation from an odontogenic cyst into an AC has not been documented yet. This case report describes the manifestation of an AC 10 years after enucleation of a histologically confirmed follicular cyst in the angle of the mandible.
