One peculiar case of giant ameloblastoma of the mandible is reported in this paper. This case is characterized by 2 interesting points: large tumor size of an infant's head, hypoproteinemia caused by leakage of serum protein, especially albumin, via fistula formed in the gum and edema of the body. Problems accompanying hypoproteinemia are discussed.
