Historical Perspective

Discovery

  • Ameloblastoma was recognized in 1827 by Cusack.[1][2]
  • Ameloblastoma was first described by Broca in 1868 and has been called adamantinoma, adamantoblastoma, epithelial odontoma, and a multilocular cyst.
  • Ameloblastoma originates from the early English word ‘amel’, meaning enamel and the Greek word ‘blastos’, meaning germ.
  • This type of odontogenic neoplasm was designated as an adamantinoma in 1885 by the French physician Louis-Charles Malassez.
  • This tumor was previously called adamantinoma. However, this term is considered inaccurate now and is not used.
  • It was finally renamed to the modern name ameloblastoma in 1930 by Ivey and Churchill.
