Abstract

Calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor is rare. It may mimic both a non-odontogenic or odontogenic tumour causing expansion and destruction of the involved bones.  Histopathology is the main stay for definitive diagnosis. Treatment options vary from enucleation tohemi -mandibulectomy or maxillectomy followed by reconstruction. We present a young female patient with CEOTin an attempt to create awareness in its management and to provide evidence based recommendationsto add on to the existing literature on this rare tumour.
