Abstract

Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is a rare odontogenic tumor often misdiagnosed as odontogenic cyst. AOT is predominantly found in female patients, which usually arise in the second or third decade and is located more often in the maxilla than mandible and often associated with an unerupted permanent tooth. However, AOT frequently resembles other odontogenic lesions such as dentigerous cysts or ameloblastoma. Treatment is conservative and the prognosis is excellent. For illustration a rare case of an AOT in the mandible which is associated with an unerupted permanent canine is presented.
