Maxillofacial Pathology, Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor


Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor is a benign neoplasm comprising of 3% of all the odontogenic tumors. It is seen most commonly in young patients with female predilection.This tumor is more common in maxillary anterior region and commonly associated with unerupted canine and it usually surrounds the crown of the unerupted tooth.This lesion is slow growing and  has very low recurrence rate.Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor clinically resembles calcifying odontogenic cyst, adenomatoid odontogenic tumor,unicystic (mural) ameloblastomas,ameloblastomas, ameloblastic fibromas,keratocystic odontogenic tumors,calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumors,ameloblastic fibro-odontomas and odontomas. dentigerous cyst,ameloblastoma,CEOT,COC.Hence histopathological examination will aid in the final diagnosis of this lesion.Here reported a rare case of Adenomatoid Odontogenic Tumor in mandible in 15 year old female patient associated with the impacted mandibular first premolar
