Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT), a benign (hamartomatous) lesion of odontogenic origin, is an uncommon tumor which affects mainly. Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is a rare odontogenic tumor which is often misdiagnosed as odontogenic cyst. To acquire additional. Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor is a hamartomous benign neoplasia of odontogenic origin. It appears mostly in young patients and females, the maxillary.

The color reaction was developed using a freshly prepared solution of 3,3-diaminobenzidine tetrahydrochloride for 3 min. The skin over the swelling appeared normal. The conflicting views whether the lesion is being neoplasm or an anomalous hamartomatous growth is also being discussed.

The review of ldontogenic gives an interesting picture regarding terminologies in the past and dilemma in classifying this tumor. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC.

Sometimes the eosinophilic material showed linear configuration, also outlined by cylindrical cells. But in our case presented, the presence of unilocular cystic lesion, fluid on aspiration, and cystic cavity on transection has to some extent support the terminology adenomatoid odontogenic cyst AOC as termed by Marx and Stern.

The distinction between these two substances in the routine hematoxylin and eosin staining is possible. Aspiration of the smelling yielded 2 ml of straw color fluid mixed with blood.

The odontogenic adenomatoid tumor. In the past, similar lesion with the terminology like adeno ameloblastoma has resulted in unnecessary mutilating surgery. The tumor is composed of spindle-shaped or polygonal cells forming sheets and whorled masses in a scant connective tissue stroma. An orthopantomogram and CBCT were realized two years after for control, and placing an implant at the level of tooth 22 showed a reduction in the bone width in this region with complete bone healing Figure 8.


Rajendran R, Sivapathasundharam B, editors. The teeth 13, 14, and 15 were missing. In one of the tumors, occasional cell foci with a squamous appearance were observed. However, an AOT often appears to envelop the crown as well as the root, unlike the dentigerous cyst which does yumor envelop roots.

The origin of AOT is controversial, but many author believe in odontogenic source. Adenoameloblastoma; report of nine cases.

Study on the origin and nature of the adenomatoid odontogenic tumor by immunohistochemistry

The growth was slow over 18 months, which favors an early enucleation. If we had previously considered that the AOT produces enamel matrix in some areas, this matrix, when in contact with oeontogenic connective tissue, would trigger mesenchymal induction in the same way as the phenomenon reported by Ten Cate 23 in the “protective stage of amelogenesis”, in which there is osteodentin or cementum production on the enamel surface by differentiation of dental follicle cells. None, Conflict of Interest: Two incubations 5 min.

Adjacent to the tumoral proliferation, a cystic lining formed by stratified pavement epithelium was common. As the growth is only within the odontigenic of the jaw bone, there is no invasion in the soft tissue.

View at Google Scholar K. Laminin, found on the luminal surface of adenomatoid structures, was compatible with the reduced enamel epithelium during the “protective stage of amelogenesis”.

Journal List Contemp Clin Dent v. The surgical management of this lesion would be odongogenic along with the associated impacted tooth because of its capsule; it enucleates easily from the bone adenojatoid 3 ]. The intraoral periapical radiograph is the best radiograph to show radiopacities in AOT as discrete foci having a flocculent pattern within radiolucency even with minimal calcified deposits.

Mandibular adenomatoid odontogenic tumor: Radiographic and pathologic correlation

Singapore Med J ; The issue of its nature being neoplastic or hamartomatous is still object of diverging opinions, generally based on clinical observations and little scientific evidence. Case Reports in Dentistry. Teeth examination revealed that teeth 22 and 23 are missing, and teeth 21 and 24 are positive at cold sensitivity test without mobility. Salvage of an impacted canine with an adenomatoid odontogenic tumour: J Clin Imaging Sci.

Case Reports in Dentistry

Most lesions are pericoronal, juxta coronal, and divergence of roots and displacement ttumor teeth often occurs without root resorption.

Tables 2 and 3 summarize the immunohistochemical results obtained using paraffin sections of formalin fixed tissue. Radiographically, the intraosseous AOT has distinct features.

However, an AOT often appears to envelop the crown as well, where we divided the specimen to show the relation of the lesion to the tooth, unlike the dentigerous cyst which does not surround the roots [ 131416 ]. The so-called combined tumlr odontogenic tumor Clinico. Treatment can involve enucleation.

A follicular variety of AOT will be adeenomatoid with an impacted tooth and most commonly gets confused with the dentigerous cyst. InAOT was described as pseudo-adenoameloblastoma by Dreibladt. Histological typing of odontogenic tumors, jaw cysts, and allied lesions. Expression of cytokeratins in human enamel organ. Adenomatoid structures were generally present, which were round with a much wider diameter than the duct-like structures and outlined by low or tall columnar cells.
