CEOT - Calcified anomalies in dental X-ray. A case-based review of differential diagnoses in radiopaque lesions in maxilla and mandible


Lanzer, Martin; Yildirim, Ayhan; Kruse, Astrid L; Grätz, Klaus; Lübbers, Heinz-Theo (2015). CEOT - Calcified anomalies in dental X-ray. A case-based review of differential diagnoses in radiopaque lesions in maxilla and mandible. Swiss Dental Journal, 125(3):315-327.

Abstract

The calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor (CEOT) is a benign tumor entity, usually localized in the molar region of the lower jaw. CEOT is not known for a destructive growth pattern, nevertheless it grows expansive. To properly diagnose a CEOT, histological verification is necessary. Due to its rare appearance and low incidence (approximately 4 cases per year worldwide), it is usually not diagnosed or thought of at once. Usually it happens to be the "surprising" diagnosis after histological verification. Hereby, we represent a case report of a CEOT - also known as "pindborg" tumor, and discuss the most likely differential diagnoses.
