Calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor (CEOT), also recognized as a Pindborg tumor, is a rare benign odontogenic neoplasm of epithelial derivation and is aggressive in the vicinity with a tendency to invade bone and neighboring soft tissues. It accounts for 1% of all the odontogenic tumors. Intraosseous CEOT is more common in comparison to extraosseous variant and is commonly situated at the posterior aspect of the mandible. Here, we report two cases of CEOT situated in the posterior aspect of mandible and both the cases were seen in female young adult age group. Partial mandibulectomy was performed in both the cases, and they were on regular follow-up. Both the cases were without any recurrence of tumor in 6 months of follow-up. Due to rarity of the case, we deliberate the radiologic features, histologic features, clinical presentation, and management of these two cases.
