Aim: Association of odontomes with odontogenic neoplasms is reported but their manifestation in conjunction with unicystic ameloblastoma is very unusual. Case Report: Herein we report a very rare case of a 28 year old male patient who was diagnosed with unicystic ameloblastoma associated with a compound odontome. Discussion: Ameloblastoma is the most common true odontogenic neoplasm in the oral cavity subsequent to odontomes. Unicystic ameloblastoma is a lesser aggressive variant of ameloblastoma as compared to its solid, multicystic counterpart. Its association with odontomes has been seldom reported in English literature. Conclusion: Reporting of such rare entities achieved through a comprehensive clinico pathological correlation can assist in a definitive diagnosis of similar cases.
