Abstract

PURPOSE: Odontoma is a benign tumor originating from odontogenic tissue without any specific cause. Odontoma is usually found in people in their first and second decades of life. It generally exists along the dental arch of maxilla and mandible in the intraosseous location and rarely extends into maxillary sinus. The purpose of this report is to report a rare case of compound odontoma which extended into maxillary sinus.
METHODS
We experienced a compound odontoma extending into maxillary sinus with swelling on upper labium in 21-year-old man.
RESULTS
The excised tumor was 2.3x1x1cm sized and was confirmed as compound odontoma by the histological examination.
CONCLUSION
We report this rare case of compound odontoma extending into maxillary sinus and having swelling of upper labium.
