Ameloblastic Fibrodentinoma (AFD) is an extremely rare odontogenic tumour which is a variant of Ameloblastic Fibro-Odontoma (AFO) consisting of both epithelial and connective tissue components of the dental tissue. It was first reported by Field and Ackerman in 1942 and represents less than 1% of all odontogenic tumours in most of the published literature worldwide. It generally occurs during childhood as a slow growing asymptomatic swelling in the posterior mandible. Hereby a unique case of AFD in a 35-year-old male who presented with a gradually growing painless swelling in his anterior mandible region is reported.
