ABSTRACT
Calcifying odontogenic cyst (COC) was described as a distinct entity for the first time by Gorlin and his associates in 1962. Dentinogenic ghost cell tumor (DGCT) was described by Praetorius et al. in 1981 as a neoplastic variety of COC. DGCT is an extremely rare odontogenic tumor and accounts for only 2% to 14% of all COCs. A case of DGCT in a 40-year-old male patient is being reported.
