Abstract

Odontomas can be detected as complex or compound variants and they rarely show the histologic characteristics of both types together. The tumor commonly associated with malocclusion, eruption disturbances and pathological anomalies, but they seldom cause bony expansion. Early detection and management of odontoma with multidisciplinary approach pose an important role to prevent disturbances associated with this common odontogenic tumor. Here we report a rare case of an odontoma which show the features of both complex and compound types and also cause bony expansion, eruption failure in an 8-year-old boy.
