Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is a distinct odontogenic tumor which accounts for about 3-7% of all odontogenic tumours. It is a benign, non-invasive lesion, a painless swelling that is slow growing and gradually enlarging. AOT is predominantly found in females and usually arises in the second or third decade of life. It occurs in the maxilla for two third of cases. The occurrence is more common in young patients and two third of the cases is associated with missing or unerupted teeth.
