Abstract

The 260 cases of adamantinoma described in the world literature have been reviewed. Case histories of 60 patients up to the age of 16 years mirror those of adults. The mortality rate is 20% in children and adults. Wide excision with bone grafting is the ideal treatment for patients under 16 years.
