      Summary

      A case of intra-oral basal cell carcinoma in the mandibular retromolar region of a 49-year-old male is presented. Possible differences between the clinical features of intra-oral basal cell carcinoma and peripheral ameloblastoma are discussed. A more radical approach to treatment is advocated.
