Abstract

Calcifying odontogenic cyst is a rare lesion representing about 1% of jaw cysts. It may occur in a central (intraosseous) or peripheral (extraosseous) location. A case of peripheral calcifying odontogenic cyst located on the gingiva, appearing as a painless, circumscribed, sessile, and pink to red nodule has been reported.Peripheral, in contrast to central, calcifying odontogenic cyst tends to affect older patients. Peripheral calcifying odontogenic cyst is a less aggressive lesion than the central counterpart, and a simple excision biopsy is curative. The histologic findings of an epithelium rich in ghost cells has helped in making the diagnosis.
