The adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is an epithelial odontogenic lesion more frequent in young individuals during the second and third decades of life. It usually affects the anterior maxillary region, and is often associated to an unerupted tooth. We present a clinical case of AOT associated to dentigerous cyst in a 16-year-old female patient, with increased asymptomatic volume in the upper lip region around the crown and the root of the unerupted left lateral incisor. The relevant aspects of the association of these two lesions, and regarding the controversial possibility of one lesion being transformed into another one are discussed here.
