ABSTRACT
Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is an uncommon benign tumor of odontogenic origin. It occurs in the second decade of life. Females are more commonly affected than males. AOT has a striking tendency to occur in the anterior maxilla; however, very few cases have been reported to occur in the maxillary antrum. This is a case report of a 17-year-old male presented with a large radiolucent lesion associated with the crown of an unerupted canine located in the right maxillary antrum, which was clinically diagnosed as dentigerous cyst. The histopathological examination revealed the presence of AOT.

Mentions: The patient was operated by raising the mucoperiosteal flap intraorally. The lining of the cystic lesion was carefully separated from the mucoperiosteum and the lesion was enucleated. The impacted canine, first premolar, and all retained deciduous teeth were extracted [Figure 3]. The specimen was then submitted for histopathological examination [Figure 4].
