Poster Information
Abstract: Background: Odontogenic tumors (OTs) are rare lesions, exclusive of the jaws, that are derived from epithelial and/or ectomesenchymal elements of the tooth-forming apparatus. Their biological behavior is heterogeneous, including hamartomatous tissue proliferation, benign nonaggressive and aggressive neoplasms, and malignant tumors with metastatic capacity.
Aim: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of odontogenic tumors diagnosed in Cairo University, Faculty of medicine, Pathology Department and to compare the results with findings in the literature.
Materials and Methods: Data of odontogenic tumors diagnosed between 2013 and 2017 were collected from the files of the Pathology Department of Qasr El: Aini Hospital, Cairo.
Results: Evaluation of 43,190 patients’ records 11 lesions were diagnosed histopathologically as odontogenic tumors, ameloblastoma was the most common odontogenic tumor of all followed by the odontogenic myxoma as the second most common lesion. Males were commonly affected than females. Most of the patients were in the third and fourth decade of life
Summary: This pilot study provides
epidemiological information on OTS in Cairo University, Faculty of
medicine, Pathology Department. The most common odontogenic tumor
was ameloblastoma followed by the odontogenic myxoma. The diagnosis
of the odontogenic tumors would be easier by understanding the most
common associated factors such as age, gender and site.
