Glandular odontogenic cyst (GOC) is an intraoral cyst originated from serre remnants which has incidence of rare frequency. Only 111 cases have been reported since Gardener first introduced it in 1987. The clinical features are the following components: cortical bone thinning, locally aggressive root resorption, non-painful swelling. The following recurrences rate are 64.3% in conservative treatment, and 0% in wide excision for instance, segmental or marginal mandibulectomy. So, its prognosis is similar to that of odontogenic keratocyst and ameloblastoma. Therefore, periodic recall follow ups are essential to detect disease recurrence. Here, we will report the first case of GOC diagnosed in our department considering with references. And we share this treatment experience because these aggessive lesions may be misjudged for simple dental cyst.
