Ameloblastic fibroma is a rare mixed odontogenic tumour which involves mostly the posterior mandible. Its peripheral variant is very rare. Only eight cases have been reported worldwide. In this report, we described a case of peripheral ameloblastic fibroma occurring in the maxillary gingiva in a 10 year-old child. The lesion was excised with a conservative surgical approach and no recurrence has occurred. Peripheral ameloblastic fibroma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a slow growing lesion involving the gingiva.
