Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor(AOT) is a relatively rare neoplasm. This tumor most commonly occurs in the maxilla, in the age range of 3–82years and has a female predilection. Most AOTs occur intraosseously, while few occur within gingival structures. AOT located intraosseously may/may not be associated with an unerupted tooth(extrafollicular variant). This article highlights the unusual presentation of AOT seen in an 11-year-old female patient with a history of trauma 4years back and a noticeable swelling in the same region 2years later. The clinical findings were suggestive of traumatic bone cyst, fibroma, central ossifying fibroma, central giant cell granuloma(CGCG), and odontogenic tumor. Based on the radiological features, a differential diagnosis of central ossifying fibroma, CGCG, fibrous dysplasia, and extrafollicular variant of AOT/odontogenic tumor was given. Eventually, radiographic and histopathologic investigations confirmed the case as an extrafollicular variant of AOT.
