The combined epithelial odontogenic tumor is known to be an uncommon lesion characterized by the synchronous presentation of typical histological features of adenomatoid odontogenic tumor, calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor, or Pindborg tumor. Combination between other types of odontogenic tumors has occasionally been reported in the literature. In this work we report 2 cases of adenomatoid odontogenic tumor associated with odontomas, one in a 16-year-old male patient and the other in an

In addition, we report a third case of association between calcifying epithelial odontogenic cyst or Gorlin cyst and ameloblastoma in a 14-year-old female patient. This case seems also to be the fourth case reported in the literature. The cases reported in this present work were evaluated clinically, radiographically, and histologically.
