Ameloblastma is benign odontogenic tumor having potential to grow into various size with tendency to recur. Unicystic ameloblastoma is a less encountered variant among the all intraosseous variety of ameloblastoma. Radiographically it shows unilocular or multilocular radiolucency mainly in posterior mandible which is common in various odontogenic tumor and cysts, but radiolucency crossing the midline is extremely rare. Unicystic ameloblastoma has less aggressive potential and recurrence may be seen after longer time, so long term follow up is essential in these cases. We are reporting case of unicystic ameloblastoma in 45 year female involving mandible, crossing midline with unilocular radiolucency with radiopaque bony trabecule radiographically.

Keywords: Ameloblastoma, Odontogenic tumor, Unicystic ameloblastoma.
