Glandular Odontogenic Cyst of the Mandible: A Case Report and its Potential Diagnostic Pitfalls
A glandular odontogenic cyst is a rare odontogenic cyst of the jaws, which demonstrates a locally aggressive behavior with high propensity to recur. Its diagnosis relies on several key histopathologic features, which are not entirely specific and can be identified in other benign as well as malignant jaw lesions. This report presents a case of 49-year old female with a large glandular odontogenic cyst of the anterior mandible. The lesion was originally diagnosed as a lateral periodontal cyst upon incisional biopsy. The clinical, radiographic, histopathologic features and main differential diagnoses of glandular odontogenic cyst are discussed to avoid its potential diagnostic pitfalls.
