Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is a rare odontogenic tumour that is frequently misdiagnosed as odontogenic cyst. It is a tumor lined by odontogenic epithelium in a variety of histoarchitectural patterns, which are embedded in a mature connective tissue stroma. It is mostly seen in young patients with a greater predilection for females. Maxillary arch is the predilection site of occurrence, most commonly associated with an unerupted maxillary canine. It presents as a symptom-free lesion and is frequently discovered during routine radiographic examination. It is seen more frequently in female than in male patients. This rare tumor resembles other odontogenic cysts and tumors such as dentigerous cyst or ameloblastoma. The treatment for AOT is conservative and the prognosis has always been good. This article discusses the surgical management of an AOT in the maxilla in paediatric patient.
