Recurrence of ameloblastoma in the soft tissue is a rare entity. We present a case in which recurrence occurred 20yrs after radical excision of the lesion. We hypothesize that seeding of cells in the soft tissue would have occurred by intraoperative contamination leading to recurrence. The case highlights the importance of long-term follow up of all cases of multicystic ameloblastoma and also demonstrates the need for follow-up after excision of dentigerous cyst and unicystic ameloblastoma due to their unpredictable nature and time intervals between recurrences even after aggressive treatment by radical excision.
