YASSUTAKA FARIA YAEDU, Renato et al. Conservative treatment of a calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumour associated with an impacted mandibular canine: a case report. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2013, vol.35, n.3, pp.123-127. ISSN 2173-9161.

The calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumour is a rare benign odontogenic neoplasm that accounts for approximately 1% of all odontogenic tumours. They are mainly located in the premolar/molar mandibular region, and are associated with an unerupted molar tooth. We present a literature review of the clinical, radiographic, pathological findings and treatment options of the calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumour, as well as describing the case of an calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumour associated with an impacted right mandibular in a 32-year-old male patient, who was treated conservatively, without no sign of recurrence of the lesion after five years.

Keywords : Odontogenic tumours; Calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumour; Mandible; Biopsy.
