Ameloblastoma is a benign neoplasm of odontogenic epithelium occurring more commonly in the mandible than the maxilla. The granular cell variant of ameloblastoma is a rare condition, accounting for 3.5% of all ameloblastoma cases. It is known to be locally more aggressive, with a higher chance of recurrence compared with other subtypes. Though fine-needle aspiration cytology of the jaw lesions are rarely done, it provides a means of rapid initial evaluation and offers reliable pre-operative cytological diagnosis. This case report illustrates the diagnosis of granular cell ameloblastoma based on correlation of clinicoradiologic and cytologic features.
