Abstract

Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is a rare tumor comprising about 2.2% to 7.1% of all odontogenic
tumors. It is a neoplasm of odontogenic origin having slow-growth rate, noninvasive and benign in nature.
Here, we report a case of a young female patient who presented with an aggressive AOT in maxilla involving
the impacted third molar. Usually, the treatment for AOT comprises of enucleation and curettage, whereas
due to the fast growth rate and aggressiveness of the lesion, subtotal maxillectomy was performed in this
case. The authors have described about the clinical, radiographic, histopathological and surgical aspect of
the case.
