The glandular odontogenic cyst is a clinically rare and histopathologically unusual type of odontogenic cyst. While there is now general acceptance of the existence of this lesion as a separate entity, there is still some controversy regarding its biological nature and clinical behavior relative to the issue of clinical management. In this paper, the clinical, radiographic and histopathological features of an extensive glandular odontogenic cyst occurring in the anterior and lateral mandible of a 63 year old male are described. The features of the case are discussed relative to the pertinent literature.
