Calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor (CEOT), also known as Pindborg tumor, is a rare benign but locally aggressive odontogenic neoplasm, accounts for <1% of all odontogenic tumors. CEOT is usually seen in the posterior area of the mandible in-between 30 and 50 years of age without definite sex predilection. A painless, slow-growing swelling with bone expansion is the most common clinical feature of CEOT. Radiographically, it presents as a mixed radiographic lesion may or may not be associated with any impacted tooth. Confirmation of the diagnosis is made by histopathological examination. The tumor has a recurrence rate of 10%–20% and so periodic follow-up is necessary. A unique case of CEOT involving the right mandibular molar–premolar in a 25-year-old female patient with clinical behavior, radiological, histopathological features and surgical managements is discussed herewith.
