The purpose of this study was to report two cases of Adenomatoid Odontogenic Tumour (AOT) with a classical histological picture, one of which was located in the maxilla and the other in the mandible. Two female patients aged 17 and 22 years old presented with a painless swelling in the anterior maxilla and in the anterior mandible . The panoramic view showed circumscribed radiolucent areas with fine calcifications in both the cases. The lesions were totally enucleated and the teeth 21 and 22 in the 1st case and 31 and 32 in the 2nd case were removed. The AOT frequently resembles other odontogenic lesions such as dentigerous cysts or ameloblastomas. Therefore, it should be distinguished from the more common lesions of odontogenic origin in routine dental examinations
