ABSTRACT
Ghost cell revealing odontogenic tumours are very elusive and controversial and pathophysiology of these tumours are still debatable. Dentinogenic ghost cell tumor (DGCT) is a rare tumorous form of calcifying odontogenic cyst and only a small number of cases have been described. Dentinogenic ghost cell tumor (DGCT) is an exceptional odontogenic tumor accounting for only 2-14% of the COCs. Till today only less than 40 cases of DGCT have been reported in English literature. The main purpose of presenting this case is to present a rare case of DGCT in the anterior mandible of 30 yrs old female exhibiting curious histological behaviour, along with review of literature.
