The appearance of mixed odontogenic tumors into the oral cavity is a rare event. It is considered that some mixed tumors are only a stage in the complete development of a hamartomatous formation such as ameloblastic fibroodontoma and odontoma. Both pathologies share in common cellular elements which at one point makes them indistinguishable from each other. We present the case of a 21 year old patient who showed a mandibular growth whose histological elements present characteristics of both pathologies. The treatment was surgical excision of the lesion. There were no complications or recurrences to periodic reevaluation.
KEY WORDS: mixed odontogenic tumours, ameloblastic fibro-odontoma, complex odontoma, odontoma, developing odontoma.
