NIGAM, Sonu; GUPTA, Sanjeev Kumar  e  CHATURVEDI, K. Uma. Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor - a rare cause of jaw swelling. Braz. Dent. J. [online]. 2005, vol.16, n.3, pp. 251-253. ISSN 0103-6440.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-64402005000300015.

Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is an uncommon tumor of odontogenic origin, characterized histologically by the formation of ductlike structures with amyloid-like deposits. Histogenesis of AOT is still uncertain and it is often considered as a hamartomatous lesion rather than a true neoplasm. AOT has a benign behavior and conservative surgical enucleation or curettage is sufficient. We report a case of AOT in a 15-year-old female who presented with left-sided jaw swelling with tooth resorption. Histopathology revealed intraosseus follicular variant of AOT. A brief review of literature is also discussed.

Palavras-chave : adenomatoid odontogenic tumor; jaw swelling.
