Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor: A unique report with histological diversity.

Mutalik VS, Shreshtha A, Mutalik SS, Radhakrishnan R - J Oral Maxillofac Pathol (2012)

Bottom Line: Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is a relatively rare and distinct odontogenic tumor that is exclusively odontogenic epithelium in origin.Although considerable number of reports is available with regard to the clinical and histological spectrum of AOT, very few have highlighted its varied histological presentations.Therefore, this article focuses on the assorted histoarchitectural patterns of AOT.

ABSTRACT
Odontogenic tumors are a group of heterogeneous lesions, features of which have been catalogued for several decades. Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is a relatively rare and distinct odontogenic tumor that is exclusively odontogenic epithelium in origin. Although considerable number of reports is available with regard to the clinical and histological spectrum of AOT, very few have highlighted its varied histological presentations. Therefore, this article focuses on the assorted histoarchitectural patterns of AOT.

(a) Orthopantamograph shows well defined radiolucency with impacted 23. (b) Occlusal radiograph also shows well defined radiolucency with impacted 23. (c) Gross examination shows a globular mass, brownish black in color, firm in consistency with tooth attached to the specimen at the cervical area

Figure 1: (a) Orthopantamograph shows well defined radiolucency with impacted 23. (b) Occlusal radiograph also shows well defined radiolucency with impacted 23. (c) Gross examination shows a globular mass, brownish black in color, firm in consistency with tooth attached to the specimen at the cervical area

Mentions: Radiographic examination showed a well-defined radiolucency with impacted 23 [Figures 1a and b]. A provisional diagnosis of dentigerous cyst with impacted 23 was made. Root resorption in relation to 63 was noted. The aspirated cystic fluid was straw colored and protein estimation level was 4.9 gm/dL. Grossly it was a globular mass, 2 × 2 × 2 cm, brownish black in color, firm in consistency with tooth attached to the specimen at the cervical area [Figure 1c].
