Title A Case of Multiple AOT-like Jawbone Lesions in a Young Patient - a New Odontogenic Entity?

English abstract
We assessed the immunohistochemical profile of an unusual case of multiple similarly looking tumors in the jawbone of a young patient. Histologically, the tumors exhibited features of adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) and adenomatoid dentinoma but showed no resemblance to any other defined odontogenic tumor entities. They expressed high amounts of cytokeratin (CK) 8 and 14 together with some Vimentin. A small rim of peripheral cells showed CK 5, 17, and 19 reactivity. Also, these lesions expressed some bcl-2 as well as p53 and Ki67. Histologically and immunohistochemically, the unusual multiple lesions differed in details from a simultaneously examined group of 24 classical AOT cases, suggesting that they may represent a hitherto less well-defined odontogenic tumor entity.
