Glandular odontogenic cyst (GOC) is a rare cyst. GOC is defined as “a cyst arising in the tooth bearing areas of the jaws and is characterized by an epithelial lining with cuboidal or columnar cells, both at the surface and lining, with crypts or cyst-like spaces within the thickness of the epithelium.” It bears resemblance to both the lateral periodontal cyst (LPC) and botryoid odontogenic cyst (BOC). In addition, it has also been discussed in connection with the mucoepidermoid carcinoma. Here we are presenting a unique case of GOC that reported to our institute, clinical and histopathological features and treatment involving resection and reconstruction with free fibula flap.
