ABSTRACT

The calcifying odontogenic cyst (COC) is a rare benign odontogenic lesion, first described as a completely different entity in 1962 by Gorlin et al, who named it as the calcifying odontogenic cyst. COCs comprise of approximately 0.3–0.8% of all odontogenic cysts. The COC is categorized as either a cystic variant or a solid (neoplasm) variant. The COC is known to be a type of odontogenic cyst of developmental origin, which can be present in either intraosseous or extraosseous forms, with the intraosseous form being the predominating type. It presents as a benign, slowly growing, asymptomatic swelling, causing an obvious expansion of the jaw. Radiographically, the lesion presents as a well-defined unilocular or multilocular radiolucency with well-defined borders and may also show evidence of irregular calcifications of different sizes, the presence of an odontome or an unerupted tooth. Here we report a case of a 24 year old male patient presenting with a Calcifying Odontogenic Cyst of the mandible in association with an impacted canine, and mimicking the presence of an Odontome.

Keywords: Calcifying Odontogenic Cyst, impacted canine, Odontome.
