Adenomatoid odontogenic tumour (AOT) is a well-established odontogenic tumour with various clinicopathological variants. AOT quite frequently mimics an odontogenic cyst commonly a dentigerous cyst. Histologically a cystic component of AOT has been described in the literature. In the present paper we review the literature for the AOTs arising in an odontogenic cyst and add to the literature a case of cystic AOT. The present review is aimed to provide an insight to the varied demographic profile, clinical behavior and prognosis of cystic variant of AOT.
