Introduction: Ameloblastoma is a benign tumor. Clinically there are no distinct differences from the types of ameloblastoma. The correlation of clinical, radiological, and histological features is expected to provide a better understanding of this disease. This study to describe the distribution of the histopathological type of mandibular ameloblastoma in patients post mandibular resection. Methods: This study was a retrospective study with a descriptive method using total sampling of the medical records of mandibular ameloblastoma patients who had undergone mandibular resection and with viable postoperative histopathological data in the hospital network of the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Airlangga University, Surabaya in 2015-2019. Results: 22 data samples were obtained. The histolopathological examination of all subtypes, the most common type of pattern was 14 cases with mixed type histological patterns, the most common combination was follicular & plexiform type in the third decade of life, and the single histology subtype most commonly found was the follicular type. No statistically significant differences were found between the histopathological subtypes, mixed type of ameloblastomas and the demographical and clinical parameters, but significant results were found between mixed type and tumor location Conclusion: The most common histologic type is mixed type with a combination of folicular and plexiform types, but it is recommended to use immunohistochemistry examination to provide a better understanding.
