Adenoameloblastoma or adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is an uncommon, benign, epithelial lesion of odontogenic origin. It is a rare benign odontogenic tumor of the jaw affecting mostly young individuals with predominance in female. It occurs mostly in maxillary anterior region. On the basis of clinical and radiographical picture, it is often misdiagnosed as an odontogenic cyst. We report on a rare case of a 13-year-old male patient with a follicular variety of AOT in mandibular left anterior region which is unusual for the same. Clinically and radiographically, the lesion was mimicking as a dentigerous cyst. Later surgical enucleation was done and specimen was sent for microscopic examination and was diagnosed as AOT along with a dentinoid-like deposits which is a rare finding.
