Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is a relatively uncommon odontogenic neoplasm, first described by Steensland in 1905. Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor accounts for about 3-7 % of all odontogenic tumors. Predominantly found in young female patients, located more often in the maxillary anterior region, associated with an unerupted permanent tooth, mainly in the second decade. There are three variants: follicular, extra follicular & extra osseous. Irrespective of the type they show similar histological appearance with gland like structures, calcifying areas and amyloid like material. We present a case of follicular adenomatoid odontogenic tumor of the mandible, in a 23-year-old female patient associated with, unerupted lower left permanent canine.
