A case is described of ameloblastoma of the mandible presenting with multiple recurrences and subsequent extension to the maxilla with resultant transformation into an aggressive (malignant?) epithelial odontogenic ghost cell tumour. The latter is a rare, biologically virulent entity that affects mainly males, exhibits a preference for the maxilla and is histologically characterized by atypical malignant odontogenic epithelium associated with areas of ghost cell formation and varying amounts of dentinoid.
