Abstract

Calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor is a rare lesion. We report the imaging features of a calcifying epithelial odonto genic tumor. The imaging including conventional radiograph, CT and MR imaging revealed a well-defined lesion in the alveolar bone of the left maxilla, which contained an impacted tooth and some small radiopacities. CT and MR imaging demonstrated a contrast enhancement mainly at the central portion of the lesion.
