Abstract
We conducted a retrospective study of 36 cases of ameloblastoma from the files of Mittaphap Hospital in Vientiane Capital, Laos. Clinical findings showed an average patient age of 31.0 +/- 3.8 years, with a slight male preponderance. Radiographically, all of the lesions showed multicystic radiotranslucency. Twenty-four patients underwent tumor resection and 12 underwent tumor enucleation. Of those patients, four underwent additional surgery because of tumor recurrence. This is the first report in the English literature of ameloblastoma cases from Laos.
