Abstract: A case of tibial adamantinoma in a one-year and ten-month old girl is reported. She had gait disturbance and her roentogenogram showed a well circumscribed radiolucent area in the tibia. Light microscopic examination showed the epithelial component of nests and pseudoglandular arrays in the loose fibrous connective tissue. We finally diagnsed the tumor as adamantinoma of the tibia based on roentogenographical and histological findings. Moreover, the nature of the neoplastic cells was studied by the immunohistochemical and electron microscopic methods. The adamantinoma is regarded as a unique neoplasm capable of differen - tiating into epithelial elements as well as mesenchymal ones . Detection of epithelial component is important to differentiate from similar disorders. The fibrous dysplasia- like lesion in stroma is interpreted as a part of the spectrum of mesenchymal differentiation.
