Calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor is a benign neoplasm, but its local destructive potential may lead to the formation of major bone defects. Microscopically, there are some histological variants. Among them, we highlight the clear cell variant due to its more aggressive behavior and a higher incidence of relapse. In this context, it is pertinent to describe the clear cell variant of calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor. Despite the large bone defect formed in the posterior region of the mandible, conservative treatment associated with guided bone regeneration assured complete bone formation and the absence of recurrence in an 8-year follow-up period.
