Ameloblastoma is a benign but locally aggressive neoplasm of odontogenic epithelium origin. Follicular type is the most common variant of ameloblastoma followed by plexiform, acanthomatous, and granular subtypes. Synchronized existence of plexiform ameloblastoma with follicular ameloblastoma is a rare event. When the plexiform type coexists with other common variant, it is termed as hybrid ameloblastoma. Here, we present a case of hybrid ameloblastoma with follicular and plexiform variants occurring in a 43-year-old female patient having persistent swelling for 5–6 months in the left mandibular body region extending up to the left angle of the mandible. The tumor was treated by en bloc resection followed by reconstruction.
