Unicystic / Cystic ameloblastoma (UCA) is a single cystic cavity which shows ameloblastomatous differentiation in the lining. It is a rare, benign, locally invasive odontogenic neoplasm of young age that shows clinical, radiographic, or gross features of an odontogenic cyst, but it histologically shows typical ameloblastomatous epithelium lining part of the cyst cavity, with or without luminal and/or mural tumor growth.
