The calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumour (CEOT) was first described as an entity by Pindborg in 1955. It is classified as an uncommon, benign, odontogenic neoplasm that is exclusively epithelial in origin. CEOT represents less than 1 % of all odontogenic tumours. Of all reported CEOTs, peripheral tumours account for 5-6%, among which clear cell variants are still rarer. This article presents the clinical, radiological and microscopic features of a peripheral clear cell variant of CEOT occurring in the gingiva of the anterior mandible of a 22-year-old female.
