Abstract


Calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor (CEOT) is a rare, benign, odontogenic tumor arising from
the odontogenic epithelium and accounts for approximately 1% of all odontogenic tumors. Clear
cell variant of CEOT is a distinct entity and has more aggressive biological behavior and higher
chances of recurrence. Here, we present a unique case of clear cell variant of CEOT involving the
left side of the maxillary alveolus in a 73‑year‑old female patient with thorough clinical, radiological,
and histological details.
Key Words: Amyloid, calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor, Congo red, odontogenic tumor
