Granular cell ameloblastoma is a rare condition, accounting for 3.5% of all ameloblastoma cases that shows marked transformation in the cytoplasm of tumor cells, which are usually stellate reticulum-like cells. The transformed cells possess very coarse, granular eosinophilic cytoplasm. Granular cell ameloblastoma is aggressive in nature with a marked propensity for recurrence and can progress to metastasis. This article discusses a case report of a 35-year-old female patient diagnosed with granular cell ameloblastoma of the right mandible.
