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 8: Sagittal section showing the extent of lesion within maxillary sinus

Mentions: Sagittal section revealed extension of the lesion within the maxillary sinus (Figure 8) with the largest dimension of 37.81 mm anterior-posteriorly up to 21.29 mm superior-inferiorly. The opacity within the lesion was present in relation with 21, 22, 23, and 24 approximately 6.82 mm superiorly from tooth 2. Radiological differential diagnosis included intraosseous calcifying cystic odontogenic tumor, adenomatoid odontogenic tumor, cystic odontome, ossifying fibroma, ameloblastic fibro-odontome, and calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor.
