The present case report is of extrafollicular adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) in the mandibular anterior region, in a 20-year-old female patient. She reported with a painless swelling in the mandibular anterior region to our department of oral and maxillofacial surgery. Fine needle aspiration yielded no fluid. Periapical, panoramic radiograph showed circumscribed radiolucent area with fine calcifications. The lesion was totally enucleated and incisors, canine and premolars of that quadrant were removed. The rarity of AOT may be associated with its slowly growing pattern and symptomless behavior. Therefore, it should be distinguished from more common lesions of odontogenic origin in routine dental examinations.
