Cone Beam Computed Tomography Findings in Calcifying Cystic Odontogenic Tumor Associated with Odontome: A Case Report.

Phulambrikar T, Vilas Kant S, Kode M, Magar S - J Dent (Shiraz) (2015)

Bottom Line: The calcifying cystic odontogenic tumor (CCOT) is a rare cystic odontogenic neoplasm frequently found in association with odontome.Conventional radiographs showed internal calcification within the lesion but were unable to visualize its relation with the adjacent structures and its accurate extent.In this case cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) could accurately reveal the extent and the internal structure of the lesion which aided the presumptive diagnosis of the lesion as CCOT.

ABSTRACT
The calcifying cystic odontogenic tumor (CCOT) is a rare cystic odontogenic neoplasm frequently found in association with odontome. This report documents a case of CCOT associated with an odontome arising in the anterior maxilla in a 28-year-old man. Conventional radiographs showed internal calcification within the lesion but were unable to visualize its relation with the adjacent structures and its accurate extent. In this case cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) could accurately reveal the extent and the internal structure of the lesion which aided the presumptive diagnosis of the lesion as CCOT. This advanced imaging technique proved to be extremely useful in the radiographic assessment and management of this neoplasm of the maxilla.

Figure 7: Coronal section of the lesion revealing central opacity measuring 14.57x10.49mm.

Mentions: Axial section demonstrated lesion extending from the mesial surface of 11 up to the mesial surface of 27 (Figure 6), measuring approximately 44.63 mm anterior- posteriorly and 31.25 mm mediolaterally. Loss of buccal cortical plate was seen in relation with 23, 24, 25 and expansion of lingual cortical plate extending from 11 up to 26. In coronal section the lesion was measured to be mediolaterally 26.63 mm and superior-inferiorly from 33.16 mm. Size of the central opacity was 14.57×10.49 mm (Figure 7).
