Abstract

Calcifying Epithelial Odontogenic Tumor (CEOT) is a rare benign odontogenic tumor that was first described by Pindborg in 1955. It accounts for less than 1% of all odontogenic neoplasms. This lesion is a locally aggressive benign odontogenic neoplasm arising from epithelial tissue. The radiographic appearance is characterized by uni- or multilocular radiolucent areas with radiopaque masses of varying sizes; there is a frequent association with an unerupted tooth. Most CEOT are intraosseous lesions which are most common in the mandible, with most of these occurring in the molar and premolar regions of the mandible. Malignant transformation and metastasis is rare. The aim of the current report was to describe the clinical radiological and histopathological findings in a case of mandibular CEOT.
