The troubles in the exact diagnosis of odontogenic tumors spring from the poor knowledge of the histological type of the lesion, from mutations in the ectodermal cells of the tumors and from the uncommonness of the pathology. Wrong diagnosis in this field of stomatology often lead to unnecessary surgical resection and could be avoid with better cooperation between surgeon and pathologist.
