Clear cell variant of calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor of maxilla: Report of a rare case.

Badrashetty D, Rangaswamy S, Belgode N - J Oral Maxillofac Pathol (2013)

Bottom Line: Clear cell variant is a distinct entity, has more aggressive biological behavior and higher chances of recurrence.Hence it is important that presence of clear cells be included in histopathological diagnosis.Here we present a rare case of clear cell CEOT having aggressive behavior.

ABSTRACT
The calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor (CEOT) is a rare benign tumor of the jaws. Pindborg's tumor having clear cells is extremely rare. Twelve central lesions have been reported of which only three cases have occurred in maxilla. Clear cell variant is a distinct entity, has more aggressive biological behavior and higher chances of recurrence. Hence it is important that presence of clear cells be included in histopathological diagnosis. Here we present a rare case of clear cell CEOT having aggressive behavior.

Figure 5: Recurrence evident in CT

Mentions: Patient reported back after 10 months complaining of nasal obstruction and tearing. CT scan confirmed recurrence in the posterior maxilla [Figure 5]. Intranasal biopsy was performed, revealed clear cells in the stroma of CEOT confirming the diagnosis of clear cell CEOT [Figure 6]. Subtotal maxillectomy with Weber Fergusson approach was done. Six weeks postoperatively, an obturator was given. No recurrence was found on 2 years follow-up.
