Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is an uncommon odontogenic tumor, accounting for 1.7% of all central odontogenic tumors. Philipsen et al. divided AOT into two variants: Central (intraosseous) and peripheral 7% of all (extraosseous) of which the former can be subdivided into follicular (those associated with an impacted tooth) and extra follicular (those not associated with an impacted tooth) variants. Over 96% of the cases of this lesion are intrabony, and the peripheral variant is rare. Through this article, we are reporting an unusual case of extra follicular AOT in a 17-year-old male patient who is clinically diagnosed as globulomaxillary cyst but radiographically and histopathologically turned to being AOT.
