Ameloblastic Fibroma and Myxoma
History. Like most odontogenic tumors, ameloblastic fibroma (AF) was formerly classified as an adamantinoma. Nagel (1935) was the first to point out that these “soft tumors” should not be confused with the semimalignant, purely epithelial ameloblastomas. Later, when odontogenic tumors were more precisely classified according to their tissues of origin (Thoma and Goldman 1946), AF was first recognized as a separate entity and was referred to as “soft odontoma”. Ultimately the term ameloblastic fibroma was applied (Shafer 1955)
