Its appearance comes from the remains of the dental blade of the enamel, remains of Malassez, remains of Serres and cystic coatings. Desmoplastic ameloblastoma is one of the rare histopathological subtypes of ameloblastoma, and may present different radiographic characteristics of the other ameloblastomas. Objective: to report to the academic community the conservative treatment of an odontogenic tumor. Case report: 36-years-old patient, leucoderma, complaining of right mandibular volume increase, spontaneous pain and paresthesia in the lower lip region, with diagnosis of desmoplastic ameloblastoma. Treatment involved two enucleations and curettage associated with peripheral oste- otomy. During clinical and radiographic follow-up, bone neo-formation was observed after the approaches.

It was found successful until now due to the ab- sence of clinical and radiographic
