Abstract

A review of the world literature has revealed 113 cases of the calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor. The clinical, radiographic, and histopathologic features are analyzed. Various treatments that have been carried out are related to the frequency of recurrence. The theories of histogenesis are discussed and an attempt is made to explain the nature and origin of the amyloid-like substance.
