Multifocal odontogenic lesions are uncommon and have only been observed in conditions associated with known genetic mutations. To the best of our knowledge, only two cases of multifocal adenomatoid odontogenic tumours (AOT) have previously been reported in the literature. In this study, we report the first case of a bilateral, separate AOT in the maxilla in the midline in a 2-year-old female. The patient presented with bilateral expansile masses in the maxilla on either side of the midline which had been present for 6 months. She was asymptomatic and had occasional difficulty in breathing. The tumour was diagnosed as AOT and was surgically enucleated along with the associated teeth. The patient recovered well and has been on recall for 5 years. The follow-up panoramic radiograph made a fortnight ago revealed evidence of three new radio-opaque lesions with an associated tooth in the region of the anterior mandible, the premolar region of the right maxilla and the molar region of the left maxilla. To acquire additional information about AOT, all reports regarding AOT cited in 'PubMed' from 1995 onward were reviewed and the incidence, clinical features, radiographic features and management of AOT are discussed in this study.
