Central Calcifying Odontogenic Cyst mimicking Central Giant Cell Granuloma: A Unique Case Report
Calcifying cystic odontogenic tumour first described by Gorlin in 1962, accounts for less than 2% of all odontogenic tumours. This rare cystic odontogenic lesion, sometimes referred to as the ‘keratinizing and calcifying odontogenic cyst’, is characterized by the presence of ‘ghost’ epithelial cells and by its resemblance to the pilomatrixoma of the skin. In this report, we present a rare case of calcifying odontogenic cyst mimicking as a central giant cell granuloma, in a 30 year old female patient present in the anterior region of lower jaw crossing the midline. The lesion was surgically removed. After enucleation no recurrence has been recorded during the follow up period of three years. Hence correlation of clinical and radiological information with histological features is important in the diagnosis of odontogenic tumours and cysts.
