OBJECTIVE To undertake a detailed histological investigation of a large series of adenomatoid odontogenic tumours (AOT) to document the frequency and histomorphology of secretory cells which might indicate an inductive capacity. MATERIALS AND METHODS Haematoxylin and eosin stained sections of 51 cases of AOT were reviewed. Selected cases were stained with periodic acid-schiff (PAS) and Congo red. RESULTS In five cases, secretory structures with a circular arrangement of tall columnar cells… CONTINUE READING
