Adenomatoid Odontogenic Tumour: A Case Report and Review of Literature
The adenomatoid odontogenic tumour is uncommon, non-invasive and constitutes about 3% of all odontogenic tumours. It differs from ameloblastoma in clinical, radiographic and histopathologic features. This tumor is best treated by enucleation, as it separates easily from the bony defect and do not recur. The debate of whether AOT is an anomalous developmental hamartomatous growth or a true benign tumour has not been settled yet. Modern studies of DNA microarray analysis and other molecular biology techniques may solve mystery regarding histogenesis of this odontogenic tumour. Hence here we report a case of Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor and review on its histogenesis.
