A radiolucent lesion presenting calcification histopathologically: a classical case of CEoT
Anjali Narwal, Anju Devi, Shruti Gupta and Ambika Gupta
The calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor (CEOT) is a rare benign odontogenic neoplasm that accounts for approximately 1% of all odontogenic tumors. Histologically, it shows sheets of polyhedral epithelial cells with deep eosinophilic cytoplasm and prominent nuclei. Globules of amyloid like material among tumor cells which undergoes calcification are evident. We present a case of CEOT which presented classical histopathologic picture but clinico-radiological it presented variably. Its non association with impacted tooth, no calcifications in the incisional material and finally on excision giving its classical picture of prominent intercellular bridges, hyperchromatic polyhedral cells and amyloid with calcifications made it an interesting case to report.
