Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor: An unusual case exhibiting cribriform aspect
dos Santos, Jean Nunes / de Lima, Flávia Oliveira / Romério, Pedro / Souza, Verônica Ferreira
The occurrence of areas exhibiting cribriform morphology in odontogenic tumors is not a very frequent finding. This report describes the case of a 22-year-old man who presented with swelling in the left anterior maxilla. An excisional biopsy was performed under local anesthesia. Histopathologically, the lesion consisted of a cystic wall exhibiting an odontogenic epithelium lining composed of oval, angular, and elongated cells forming a cribriform pattern. No recurrence has been detected after 2 years.
