Ameloblastic fibroma is an unusual, benign, mixed, odontogenic tumor, usually asymptomatic, with prevalence in the first two decades of life, posterior region of the mandible. Because it is silent, it is usually discovered by routine imaging exams and requires a surgical approach for diagnosis and treatment, as they have characteristics similar to other tumors and cysts, in addition to having the potential to expand, reabsorbing bone and dental tissue. Treatment is widely discussed between a conservative and radical approach, and the choice must be made based on a thorough analysis of the lesion, as it may recur. Based on this, the present study aims to present a case with 2 years of follow-up of this rare pathology with enucleation and curettage of the region of the right mandibular angle and removal of tooth 47 germ from a 6-year-old child.Conservative treatment of ameloblastic fibroma in young patients presents itself as an effective option, since it has several advantages such as reduced morbidity and favors rehabilitation in an aesthetic and functional way.
