A glandular odontogenic cyst (GOC) is a rare odontogenic cyst, classified as a new developmentalodontogenic cyst by the WHO in 1992. It frequently arises in the anterior region of the mandible. Histopathologically, GOC is lined by epithelium of varying thickness, which contains mucous cells and vacuolations. Some casesshow clinically invasive growth, leading to a high rate of recurrence despite surgical excision. Some studies haveestimated that the overall recurrence rate is 27%.
We report a case of GOC arising in the right mandibular third molar region. The patient was a 34-year-old man.Surgical excision was performed. One year 4 months after the operation, the prognosis was good, with no signs of recurrence.
