J Oral Pathol. 1984 Jun;13(3):310-9. doi: 10.1111/j.1600-0714.1984.tb01429.x.


A case of malignant calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumour is reported in a 75-year-old man. Evidence of local tissue invasion and lymph-node metastasis is presented. Immunoperoxidase studies of the neoplastic cells and tumour amyloid were negative for a variety of antigens, including the epithelial markers CEA and keratin. The histological and clinical findings are discussed.
