Abstract

Calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor (CEOT), or the Pindborg tumor, is very rare neoplasm, which accounts up to 1% of all odontogenic tumors. These tumors involve mandible almost twice as common as the maxillary bone, mostly in the premolar and molar region and present at first with local swelling. There is no gender predilection and the tumor usually appears between 2nd and 6th decade of life. We report the case of a 36-year-old male patient with a Pindborg tumor in the maxillary region on the right side, also involving the adjacent maxillary sinus, with destroying of the local anatomical structures. Complete surgical excision of the tumor has been performed and four years after surgical treatment, there is no sign of recurrence.

Abstract in Croatian

KALCIFICIRAJUĆI EPITELIJALNI ODONTOGENI TUMOR ----- Kalcificirajući epitelijalni odontogeni tumor ili Pindborgov tumor je vrlo rijetka novotvorina, koja čini oko 10% svih odontogenih tumora. Oni zahvaćaju mandibulu gotovo dva puta češće nego maksilu, najčešće u području premolara i molara, a prvo se manifestiraju kao ograničena oteklina. Tumor se javlja obično između drugog i šestog desetljeća života. Mi prezentiramo bolesnika straog 36 godina sa Pindborgovim tumorom desne maksilarne regije, koji zahvaća maksilarni sinus sa destrukcijom okolnih anatomskih struktura. Učinjena je kompletna kirurška ekscizija i nakon četiri godine i dalje nema znakova bolesti.
