Author information

Life Science Research Israel, Ness Ziona.


A spontaneous ameloblastic fibro-odontoma is described in a 73-wk-old female mouse. The tumor was located in the molar mandibular region. The diagnosis was made on the basis of the histologic presence of odontogenic epithelial tissue embedded in mesodermal tissue resembling dental papilla, and containing in addition dentin and enamel. The positive reaction for keratin and vimentin confirmed the presence of ectodermal and mesodermal elements respectively in the tumor.
