AOT is a benign (hamartomatous), non-invasive lesion with a slow but progressive growth. AOT presents as follicular, extrafollicular and peripheral lesion. AOT is not as rare an odontogenic tumor as was thought previously, but its association with odontogenic cyst is not commonly seen. AOT can be seen associated with dentigerous cyst, calcifying odontogenic cyst and sometimes with unicystic ameloblstoma. Follicular AOT is usually associated with an impacted tooth, but association of two impacted teeth in a single tumor is a rare finding. Hence herewith we are reporting a case of AOT associated with dentigerous cyst involving an impacted canine and lateral incisor.
