Objective: The aim of this study was to compare the clinical, radiologic, and histopathological features of 28 intraosseous ameloblastomas. In addition, we compared the data obtained in this study with that of previous studies. Materials And Methods: Data with regard to age, gender, clinical manifestation, radiographic aspect, anatomical distribution, and histopathological subtypes were analyzed in 28 subjects. Results: The patients' age ranged from 7 years to 65 years (mean, 30.4 years). Sixteen (57.14%) of the 28 subjects were males, and 12 (42.85%) were females. A total of 22 cases (78.5%) were located in the mandible, posterior region was more often affected with 17 cases (77.27%) than only 5 cases (22.72%) in the anterior segment. Swelling was the most common symptom and was experienced by 12 (42.85%) patients. Radiographically, 14 cases (50%) were multilocular with a well-demarcated border. Of the remaining 14 cases, 10 were unilocular and 4 were unknown in appearance. The most common histopathological pattern was follicular followed by plexiform or acanthomatous. Conclusions: The clinical epidemiological profile to patients in the present study is similar to that in other populations, with follicular ameloblastoma being the most common histological subtypes seen.
