Evaluation of enlarged follicles with unerupted teeth is always important because some changes may occur. One of the ex-tremely rare conditions seen in dental follicles is multiple calcifying hyperplastic dental follicle. We report a case of multi-ple calcifying hyperplastic dental follicle. Radiographs showed that mandibular third molars had a pericoronal radiolucent zone delineated by a well-defined and sclerotic border. Microscopic examination revealed a combination of fibrous connec-tive and small calcifications. Multiple calcifying hyperplastic dental follicle is a rare condition and its correct diagnosis is necessary to apply appropriate treatment.
