The present profile of the Pindborg Tumor or calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumour (CEOT) is based on a literature survey of 210 (193 intraosseous & 17 extraosseous) published tumour cases. The CEOT is a benign, though occasional locally invasive, slow-growing neoplasm occurring as intraosseous (95) and extraosseous (5) variants. 52 of intraosseous CEOT are associated with an unerupted tooth. CEOT shows a relative frequency of 1 all of odontogenic tumor. The extraosseous variant is diagnosed slightly earlier (mean age 34 years) than the intraosseous type (mean age 39 years). Both variants have an almost 1:1 gender ratio. The intraosseous CEOT shows a maxilla: mandible site ratio of 1:3 and are mainly located in the premolar/molar region. The present authors present evidence that the CEOT originates from the complex system of dental laminae or remnants.
