Abstract

Ameloblastoma is a histologically benign tumor, but it shows a tendency of locally aggressive behavior. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a successful reconstruction performed for treating a mandibular defect by using autologous human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells in a patient with plexiform ameloblastoma. In this article, we report the result of the mandibular reconstruction with autologous human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells and autogenous bone graft, followed by the placement of osteointegrated dental implant and prosthodontic treatment in a patient with plexiform ameloblastoma.
