Ameloblastoma is locally intrusive and is envisioned to be a neoplasms of benign type originated from odontogenic epithelium type, which generally affects the mandible. Ameloblastoma comprises different types with precise clinical and histological features. Apart from all these usually encountered varieties there are not so generally occurring types of the ameloblastoma, unicystic type of ameloblastoma being one among those signifies to that cystic lesions that display features clinically, radiographically or gives gross descriptions of jaw cyst but on histological inspection displays an epithelium which is seen lining the cystic cavity typically ameloblastomatou cells type, with or without luminal and or mural tumor proliferation. Albeit unicystic ameloblastoma being an  infrequently encountered type of ameloblastoma and is well-thought-out to be less aggressive, this tumor displays significant similarities with Dentigerous cyst equally when seen clinically and on radiographs too, it befalls difficult to conclude the correct diagnosis and suitable form of treatment. We are bestowing a case report of 15 histologically diagnosed unicystic ameloblastoma cases, among which 4 comprised intraluminal type and 11 mural type.
