The calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor (CEOT) is a benign epithelial odontogenic lesion that accounts for less than 1% of all odontogenic tumors. CEOT is usually asymptomatic and an incidental radiological finding, often presenting as a mandibular radiolucency with flecks of calcified material. We report a case of CEOT in the right posterior maxilla of a 24-year-old female that was associated with an ectopic unerupted tooth. The tumour in this case caused mild pain and appeared radiographically similar to an odontoma or Ameloblastic fibro-odontome, due to its dense calcified contents. Diagnosis was confirmed through histopathology. This case report highlights the unusual clinical and radiographic appearence of Pindborg tumor.
