Abstract

The Dentinogenic ghost cell tumor (DGCT), a benign neoplasm, causes bone destruction and cortical expansion, despite being locally invasive and associated with a risk of local recurrence. This article portrays a rare case of 22-year-old male patient who reported with a chief complaint of recurrent swelling on right side of the face since 1 month. Multi-slice multiplanar plain CT was carried out which revealed abnormal lytic expansile lesion involving the alveolar process of the maxilla on right side. The final diagnosis of the lesion was made Dentinogenic ghost cell tumor with histopathological investigation which revealed it to be rarest entity.
