ABSTRACT
Calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor is rare. It may mimic both a non-odontogenic or odontogenic tumour causing expansion and destruction of the involved bones.  Histopathology is the main stay for definitive diagnosis. Treatment options vary from enucleation to hemi - mandibulectomy or maxillectomy followed by reconstruction. We present a young female patient with CEOT in an attempt to create awareness in its management and to provide evidence based recommendations to add on to the existing literature on this rare tumour.

Key Words: Calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor, Pindborg tumor, CEOT
