Glandular odontogenic cyst (GOC) is an uncommon developmental odontogenic cyst of the jaw with a relative frequency between 0.012-1.3%. GOC is very rare and has an unpredictable and potentially aggressive behaviour. Generally this cyst is encountered in the anterior areas of the mandible and is more common with a wide age range, the mean age being 49.5 years, and has a tendency to recur. GOC is often misdiagnosed because of its overlapping clinical and histopathological features with that of other odontogenic cysts such as lateral periodontal cyst (LPC) and central low-grade Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma. Here, we present a case of GOC in a 43 yr old male patient in the right mandibular posterior region treated by enucleation and chemical curettage with Carnoy’s solution.
