Abstract Here we report a case of adenomatoid odontogenic tumor AOT in the maxilla in a young girl aged 14 years and its surgical management. We also review the literature and variations in the nomenclature and classifications of this interesting tumor. The review of literature gives an interesting picture regarding terminologies in the past and dilemma in classifying this tumor.

Abstract Adenomatoid odontogenic tumour AOT is a benign non-invasive odontogenic tumour, having mostly a slow and sustained growth pattern. AOT is an uncommon lesion of odontogenic origin, which affects young individuals, with a female predilection and mostly occurring in the second decade. In the literature, it has been considered as a hamartoma rather than a true neoplasm because of its limited size, minimal growth potential and the lack of recurrence.

The tumour has been diagnosed approximately twice as frequently in women than men. However, the slow growing nature of the lesion may cause the patients tolerate the swelling for years until it produces an obvious deformity. For periodontal intrabony defects caused by AOT guided tissue regeneration with membrane technique is suggested after complete removal of the tumour. Only three cases in Japanese patients are reported in which the recurrence of this tumour occurred.

Case presentation A year-old female patient came with swelling and displacement of teeth of her upper left lateral incisor and canine, since 6—7 months. Overlying mucosa was normal in colour with firm to hard in consistency on palpation, without any tenderness.

Mesial tilting of crown 22 and distal tipping of 21 was noted.

AOT affects young individuals with a female predominance, occurs mainly in the second decade, and usually surrounds the crown of unerupted teeth. This lesion is most commonly located in the anterior maxilla and rarely in the mandible. It is usually associated with an impacted canine.


Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor: As an unusual mandibular manifestation

Department of Oral Medicine and Radiology, Dr. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. It is predominantly found in young and female patients, located more often in the maxilla in most cases associated with an unerupted permanent tooth. It is a benign hamartomatous , noninvasive lesion with slow but progressive growth. There are three variants of AOT: follicular, extrafollicular, and peripheral. We report a rare case of follicular-type AOT in the mandible of a year-old male patient who presented with right -sided jaw swelling.
