Glandular Odontogenic Cyst: Case Series

Contemp Clin Dent. Oct-Dec 2017;8(4):653-657. doi: 10.4103/ccd.ccd_554_17.


Glandular odontogenic cyst (GOC) is an uncommon and aggressive jaw cyst with a high recurrence rate. It may grow into a large size. Diagnosis of the cyst is challenging since it may be confused with some other jaw cysts and malignancies. Treatment methods vary from conservative surgery to radical bone resection. In this case series, we briefly present five cases of GOC diagnosed and treated at our clinic. Thorough histopathological diagnosis and long-term follow-up are necessary in patients with GOC.

Keywords: Glandular odontogenic cyst; histopathology; recurrence; surgical treatment.
