Haldia, India

Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is a rare epithelial odontogenic tumor of jaws. It is a benign, painless, non-invasive, slow-growing lesion, with a frequency of 2.2-7.1%. Upon clinical examination it can be misdiagnosed as an odontogenic cyst. AOT affects young individuals with a female predominance, occurs mainly in the second decade, more common in anterior maxilla and usually surrounds the crown of unerupted tooth mostly impacted canine. AOT has three clinical subtypes named as follicular, extrafollicular, and peripheral. 

This case report represents a 20 years old female patient with the chief complaint of swelling on the right upper anterior region for 8 months.
