Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is a rela-tively uncommon distinct odontogenic neoplasm that was first described by Steensland in 1905.

The present case is a rare report of an adenomatoid odontogenic tumor

However when the ameloblastoma shows a typical expansile multilocular aspect, the differential diagnosis can include a variety of odontogenic or non-odontogenic lesions with similar characteristics like odontogenic keratocysts, aneurysmal bone cysts, adenomatoid odontogenic tumors
, odontogenic myxomas, and giant cell central lesions.
