The calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor (CEOT), also known as the Pindborg tumor, is a rare benign odontogenic neoplasm, accounts for 0.4-3% of all odontogenic tumors. The CEOT is a benign, locally invasive, slow growing neoplasm occurring as intraosseous and extraosseous forms. The extraosseous variant is diagnosed slightly earlier (mean age 34.4 years) than the intraosseous type (mean age 38.9 years), with equal gender predilection. The most frequent location is the mandibular premolar and molar area; less frequently the lesion is found in the maxilla. This case report is a peculiar case of Pindborg tumor characterized by a rare localization of the lesion extending from anterior to the posterior of the maxilla in a 76-year-old female.
