Adenomatoid Odontogenic Tumour (AOT) is an unusual benign tumour unique to maxillofacial area, with a tendency to involve the tooth bearing areas of both the jaws and accounting for 3% of all the odontogenic tumours. Diagnosis of the tumour is sometimes intriguing owing to its variable clinical and radiographic presentation. One such variable and relatively rare presentation of extrafollicular type of adenomatoid odontogenic tumour in anterior maxilla of an eighteen year old female has been discussed in this paper which can be refreshing for the practitioner.
