Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) has been described as an uncommon benign odontogenic tumor mostly encountered in young patients, especially in the second decade of life. It is uncommon in patients older than 30 years of age. Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor shows a female predilection. Maxilla is the major site of occurrence, almost twice as often as the mandible, and the anterior part of the jaw is more frequently involved than the posterior part. An unerupted maxillary canine is the tooth most commonly associated with AOT. Clinically, AOT presents as a slowgrowing symptom-free lesion and is frequently discovered during routine radiographic examination. This article features the AOT cases reported at Government Dental College, Kozhikode, Kerala, India over a period of 5 years from January 2009 to January 2014. This case series is diverse with respect to the anatomic site of the tumor and its radiographic features, and all the three clinico-topographic variants are reported.
