A Glandular Odontogenic Cyst (GOC) is a rare developmental cyst of odontogenic origin. Occurrence rate is low, with less than 150 cases reported in the literature thus far.1 GOCs can be misdiagnosed due to clinicopathological similarities to other odontogenic cysts, including those of a benign and malignant nature. A wide range of ages can be affected, with a mean age of 45.7.2 The most commonly affected site appears to be the anterior mandible. An unusual presentation of a GOC affecting the right posterior mandible of a 42-yearold male is reported.
