Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor is a benign (hamartomatous), noninvasive lesion with slow but progressive growth. It develops from the dental lamina or its remnants. There are two variants of this tumor: Central and Peripheral. Central variant further get classified as follicular and extrafollicular on the basis of its association with the unerrupted tooth. Clinically this tumor has resemblance with other odontogenic lesions like dentigerous cysts, ameloblastoma etc. Thus histopathological examination is an important aid to confirm its diagnosis. Here we report a rare case of follicular type of Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor associated with impacted mandibular premolar.
