We report a female consulting for a lump in the posteroinferior portion of the mouth with a foul smelling discharge. A partial jaw excisión is performed and pathology reported a follicular ameloblastoma. A post-operative CAT sean showed a mass in the operated jaw angle. The patient was lost from control and returned three years later with a large mass. A radical excisión was performed. There was a tumor relapse and the patient died 11 months after the last surgery
