Abstract

Calcifying odontogenic cyst is a developmental odontogenic cyst first described by Gorlin in 1962.

In this report a rare case of calcifying odontogenic cyst with ameloblastic proliferation (an extremely rare histologic variant) with one year follow – up is described and the relevant literature is briefly reviewed.
