Glandular odontogenic cyst: A diagnostic dilemma.

Shah AA, Sangle A, Bussari S, Koshy AV - Indian J Dent (2016 Jan-Mar)

Bottom Line: It poses a diagnostic challenge as it can be clinically and histopathologically confused with lateral periodontal cyst, botryoid odontogenic cyst, radicular and residual cysts with mucous metaplasia, and low-grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma.The present case report describes GOC in both male and female patients with intra-oral swelling following extraction of 36 and 46, respectively.Careful histopathological examination is needed to diagnose GOC, and a careful long-term follow-up is advocated.

ABSTRACT
Glandular odontogenic cyst (GOC) is a rare and uncommon jaw bone cyst of odontogenic origin described in 1987 by Gardener et al. as a distinct entity. It is a cyst having an unpredictable, potentially aggressive behavior, and has the propensity to grow in large size with relatively high recurrence rate. It poses a diagnostic challenge as it can be clinically and histopathologically confused with lateral periodontal cyst, botryoid odontogenic cyst, radicular and residual cysts with mucous metaplasia, and low-grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma. The present case report describes GOC in both male and female patients with intra-oral swelling following extraction of 36 and 46, respectively. Careful histopathological examination is needed to diagnose GOC, and a careful long-term follow-up is advocated.
