Keratoameloblastoma is an exceptionally rare subtype of ameloblastoma that has been reported <20 times previously in the literature. All present as intraosseous lesions. We report an unusual case of keratoameloblastoma localized in the palate without involving palatal bone, thus presenting as a peripheral lesion. To the best knowledge of the authors, no case of peripheral keratoameloblastoma has been reported in the English literature till now, probably rendering this case to be the first one. Therefore, the purpose of this article is to present a rare and the first case of peripheral keratoameloblastoma with histopathological features of this tumor.
