Ameloblastoma in Jamaica – Predominantly Unicystic: Analysis of 47 Patients over a 16-Year Period and A Case Report on Re-entry Cryosurgery as a New Modality ofTreatment for the Prevention of Recurrence

In this analysis of ameloblastoma in Jamaica, it was found that most were unicystic histologically irrespective of whether they were unilocular or multilocular radiographically. Re-entry cryosurgery at six months for the prevention of recurrence is emphasised as a new modality of treatment.
