Resumen

ZAMORA LINARES, Carlos E.. Ameloblastomas of the maxillary sinus in children. MEDISAN [online]. 2013, vol.17, n.11, pp.9004-9008. ISSN 1029-3019.

The ameloblastoma is an odontogenic tumor described as an anatomically benign and clinically persistent lesion affecting the jaws, especially the mandible. It is rare in children and the criteria for surgery in the childhood are controversial, partly due to the risk of recurrence when conservative methods are practiced. On the other hand, a radical treatment can alter the maxillofacial growth and cause serious esthetic and functional problems. Two clinical cases of children with unicystic ameloblastoma located in the maxillary sinus and treated conservatively are described, who after 7 and 4 years of follow-up, respectively, showed no clinical and radiographic signs of tumor recurrence.

Palabras clave : child; ameloblastoma; odontogenic tumor; maxillary sinus.
