Ameloblastoma is one of the most common clinically significant tumor. It belongs to 1% of all oral tumors. Compared to maxilla, the mandible is qyite commonly affected (4:1). It affects both male and female population equally. The age at presentation is usually between 3rd and 7th decade of life. The usual clinical presentation is that of a slow growing asymptomatic intraoral swelling. There are four clinico-radiographic types of Ameloblastoma namely Unicystic, Multicystic, Peripheral (extra-osseous) and Desmoplastic. The Histologic types include Follicular, Plexiform, Acanthomatous, Granular, Basal cell & Desmoplastic. The unicystic type has three histologic variants namely luminal, intra-luminal and mural. This article is aimed at documenting three case reports of Ameloblastoma with histopathologic variations and correlating them with clinico-radiographic findings

The ovaries are unique in the variety of lesions that can arise from them. The complex anatomy and physiology of ovary with constant changes from puberty to menopausal age give rise to number of different cells, which are capable of giving rise to tumors. The present study is a two years, prospective study carried out in a tertiary care hospital. It is a descriptive study which included all specimens of ovarian tumors, diagnosed as surface epithelial origin on histopathological studies. Most patients presented with non-specific and vague symptoms over a period of time. Patient’s education and awareness among primary care physicians with timely attention and further investigations, can help in early detection of ovarian malignancies in this subset of cases, thereby reducing morbidity and mortality associated with diagnosis in advanced stages.
