This report is of the first case of ameloblastic carcinoma in a 35-year-old Thai man. Histologically, the lesion showed areas of typical ameloblastoma as well as areas of anaplastic transformation. The patient was treated by partial mandibulectomy followed by postoperative radiation therapy. There was no recurrence after the follow-up period of 1.5 years. The literature is reviewed with respect to the classification, clinical presentation, radiographic findings, histological findings, and treatment of this rare lesion.

Key words: Ameloblastoma, Malignant, Odontogenic carcinoma, Thailand
