Adenomatoid Odontogenic Tumour is an uncommon Odontogenic lesion, accounting for about 3 to 7% of odontogenic tumours. The tumour composed of Odontogenic epithelium, characterized histologically by duct like structures with amyloid like deposits. It is a non invasive lesion with slow but progressive growth. We hereby report a case of Adenomatoid Odontogenic Tumour in a 13 year old female patient in the maxillary region. This paper provides the controversies regarding its origin and management in light of recent findings, clinical, radiographic, histopathological and therapeutic features of Adenomatoid Odontogenic Tumour.
