Keratoameloblastoma (KA) is a rare histological variant of ameloblastoma usually characterized by extensive production of keratin within the odontogenic epithelium. Pindborg and Weinmann, in 1958, just introduced the term KA. Later in 1992, the WHO categorized it as acanthomatous ameloblastoma with the presence of areas of keratinization. Only a handful number of cases are documented, and it has to be differentiated from other keratin-producing tumors for rendering appropriate treatment. This review aims to discuss a case report of KA which presented as a challenge to the clinicians.
