Maxillary Adenomatoid Odontogenic Tumour - An Uncommon Oral Pathology, Reported Locally

Shahjahan Katpar, Mehwash Kashif, Naghma Azad, Navid Rashid Qureshi.


BACKGROUND: Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is relatively an uncommon oral tumour,
which accounts for about 3-7% of all odontogenic tumors as reported in the literature, but local
reporting in Pakistan is insignificant. AOT is a benign (hamartomatous), noninvasive odontogenic
tumour with slow and sustained growth. This report describes the surgical therapy, clinical
course and morphological characteristics of an AOT, which developed in the maxilla of 22
years old female patient, initially diagnosed as a Gobulomaxillary Cyst, based on the clinical
and radiological features. No local recurrence has been observed so far, as it was successfully
completely removed under local anaesthesia.

Key words: Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor, Globulomaxillary Cyst, Maxilla, local anaesthesia, Pakistan.
