Clear cell odontogenic carcinoma is characterized by EWSR1 gene rearrangement, whereas MAML 2 gene rearrangement is pathognomonic for mucoepidermoid carcinoma. Fluorescence in situ hybridization analysis for rearrangement of these genes can be extremely helpful in difficult cases when conventional histological distinction is not possible. Herein, we describe a unique case in which a 69-year-old man had an intraosseous maxillary tumor with clear cell morphology and fluorescence in situ hybridization analysis showing rearrangement of the MAML2 gene as well as a low-level rearrangement of the EWSR1 gene. In our opinion, this case represents a hybrid tumor harboring dual gene rearrangement. © 2020 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
