Summary

Complex odontomas are rare odontogenic tumours in horses comprised of a combination of mesenchymal and epithelial tissues. Examination, radiographic and histopathological findings in this patient all represent the typical behaviour of a complex odontoma. Oral tumours in horses may have treatment limitations due to tumour size and location. Similar to treatment in other species, surgical enucleation was curative for this type of tumour.
