Calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor (CEOT) is a benign epithelial odontogenic tumor which accounts for 1% of all the odontogenic tumors. The extraosseous presentation of CEOT is seen in only 6% of its cases. Histopathologically CEOT presents with sheets and islands of polyhedral cells with abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm and well-defined borders and intercellular bridges. Eosinophilic amyloid material and calcifications either focal or liesegang rings are noted in most cases. Rarely, clear cells are noted among these epithelial cells. The aim of this report was to conduct an extensive search of literature to locate, appraise and congregate data available regarding extraosseous CEOTs with clear cells and also to report one such rare case.
