Extraosseous ameloblastoma is the peripheral counterpart of the usual well known central ameloblastoma. The most commonly involved sites include the lingual gingiva of the mandible, lips, and palate, with only a few reports of peripheral ameloblastoma in the buccal mucosa cited in the literature. This article aims to describe a case of peripheral ameloblastoma of buccal mucosa, its presentation, the dilemma in diagnosis, and management. We emphasize the need to include this rare entity in the differential diagnosis of buccal mucosal swellings.
