Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor

Adenomatoid odontogenic tumors are rare and differ from most other dentition related lesions in that they more frequently occur in the maxilla.


They are also seen more frequently in females, most frequently in the second decade of life.

Radiographic features

They present as an expansile radiolucency with well-circumscribed margins, most commonly in the maxilla (70%). They also contain a variable amount of punctate calcifications.
