Adenomatoid odontogenic tumour [AOT] is a relatively uncommon odontogenic tumour first described by Steensland in 1905. Adenomatoid odontogenic tumour accounts for about -7% of all odontogenic tumours, predominantly found in young female patients, located more often in maxilla and associated with an unerupted permanent tooth. The tumour is often misdiagnosed as an odontogenic cyst. AOT frequently resembles other odontogenic lesions such as dentigerous cysts or ameloblastomas. Therefore, it should be distinguished from the more common lesions of odontogenic origin in routine dental examinations. Here we present a rare case report of a 10- year-old female patient of AOT occurring in the mandible.
