Ameloblastic carcinoma (AC) is a rare primary odontogenic tumor that has histological features of both ameloblastoma and carcinoma. A total number of 92 case reports speak about its rare incidence, affecting mostly the mandible as a locally destructive lesion. The maxilla is affected even more rarely as only 35 cases have been reported until 2012 in scientific literature. The clinical course of AC is generally aggressive, with extensive local bone destruction. The most common clinical features include swelling, pain, trismus, significant bone resorption with tooth mobility, dysphonia and intraoral fistula. We report two cases of AC with aggressive behavior.
