Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is a hamartomatous, benign, uncommon epithelial odontogenic tumor. It is also called as ameloblastic adenomatoid tumor, adamantinoma, epithelioma adamantinum or teratomatous odontoma. The WHO has defined AOT as a tumor of odontogenic epithelium with duct-like structures and with varying degree of inductive changes in the connective tissue. It commonly occurs in maxilla with impacted canine as a painless swelling. Conservative surgical enucleation is the treatment of choice. Here we present a case of a 29 years old male patient reported with chief complaint of swelling in the lower right anterior teeth region since 1 month to the department of oral medicine and radiology.
Key words: Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor, pseudo-adenoameloblastoma, anatomical variation.
