Ameloblastic fibro-odontoma (AFO) is a benign, mixed odontogenic tumor of epithelial and mesenchymal origin. It is predominantly seen in the younger age group, with delayed or altered eruption of teeth. Being clinically asymptomatic, this is identified incidentally during routine radiographic examination. Although considered to be nonaggressive with minimal tendency for recurrence, AFO requires surgical excision with long-term follow-up. This paper presents a rare case report of an 11-year-old boy, who was provisionally diagnosed with complex odontoma and later turned out to be AFO of the mandible.
