AUTHOR(S): Dr. Heena Zainab, Dr. Shahnaaz Saba and Dr. Mohammad Khaja Moinuddin
ABSTRACT:Glandular odontogenic cyst (GOC) is odontogenic in origin and is an uncommon jaw bone cyst, with a frequency rate ranging from 0.12% to 0.13% of all jaw cysts. It was first described in 1987 by Gardner et al., GOC has a male predominance and occurs primarily in middle‑aged individuals. Clinically, the most common site of occurrence is the anterior region of mandible and maxilla. The incidence of recurrence reported is due to incomplete removal of the lining following conservative treatment. This article presents a rare case of glandular odontogenic cyst in a 24- year old male patient in the posterior region of the maxilla.
