Abstract

Central mucoepidermoid tumour is an uncommon tumour within the jawbones. The onset is insidious and the first symptom is usually swelling. The radiographic appearance resembles a multiocular cyst or ameloblastoma. Two new cases are presented, and their diagnosis, histopathology and treatment are discussed. The prognosis is fairly good after adequate surgical treatment.
