adenoameloblastoma

adenoameloblastoma

 [ad″ĕ-no-ah-mel″o-blas-to´mah]
an odontogenic tumor with formation of ductlike structures in place of or in addition to a typical ameloblastic pattern.

ad·e·no·ma·toid o·don·to·gen·ic tu·mor

a benign epithelial odontogenic tumor appearing radiographically as a well-circumscribed, radiolucent-radiopaque lesion usually surrounding the crown of an impacted tooth in an adolescent or young adult; characterized histologically by columnar cells organized in a ductlike configuration interspersed with spindle-shaped cells and an amyloidlike deposition that gradually undergoes dystrophic calcification.

adenoameloblastoma

[ad′ənō·amel′ōblastō′mə] pl. adenoameloblastomas, adenoameloblastomata
a benign tumor of the maxilla or mandible composed of ducts lined with columnar or cuboidal epithelial cells. It develops in tissue that normally gives rise to the teeth, and it most often occurs in young people.

Adenomatoid Odontogenic Tumour

An uncommon and usually asymptomatic, non-invasive hamartomatous lesion with slow progressive growth which accounts for 2–13% of all odontogenic tumours. AOT usually affects young patients, under age 30, has a male:female ratio 1:2, and occurs in the anterior maxillary region. It is thought to arise from the odontogenic epithelium of the dental laminar complex or its remnants. It is often associated with impacted canines.
Imaging Cystic radiologic appearance.
Management Curettage teeth.

Benign epithelial type lesion appearing radiographically as a well-circumscribed, radiolucent-radiopaque lesion usually surrounding crown of an impacted tooth in an adolescent or young adult.

En el pasado esta lesion fue descrita como una variedad del ameloblastoma, siendo denominada adenoameloblastoma, posteriormente se reconoce como una entidad patologica diferente de acuerdo a su naturaleza, comportamiento e histologia(5)(30)(3).
As a result, the lesion is known by many names, including adenoameloblastoma, adenoameloblastic odontoma, epithelial tumour associated with developmental cysts, ameloblastic adenomatoid tumour and adenomatoid or pseudoadenomatous ameloblastoma.
