Title:  Management of compound odontoma in a 10-year-old girl preserving the associated impacted permanent tooth

Abstract:  Background Compound odontoma has been reported to be the most common of all odontogenic neoplasms and tumor-like lesions. Only rarely the treatment of this lesion in association with an impacted tooth has been reported. Case report A compound odontoma in a 10-year-old girl, associated with an impacted permanent incisor is described, focusing on the diagnosis and the importance of early treatment of this lesion. The patient underwent surgical excision of the lesion and it was decided to wait for the spontaneous eruption of the impacted tooth. After 6 months no eruption was observed and thus the orthodontic treatment was deemed necessary. At the one-year follow-up, the tooth was brought into the maxillary arch.
