Calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor (CEOT) is a benign odontogenic neoplasm with characteristic radiological and histopathological picture. CEOT is also known as Pindborg tumor. We are presenting a case of CEOT which despite its typical radiological picture was mimicking like an odontogenic cyst on histopathology and a correct diagnosis and treatment will definitely prevent any unwanted recurrences.
Key words: Calcifications, odontogenic tumour, pindorg tumour.
