Calcifying odontogenic cysts (COCs) represent a heterogeneous group of lesions that exhibits a variety of clinical, behavioral, and histological features. COC or Gorlin's cyst is now classified by the World Health Organization as a tumor. Calcifying cystic odontogenic tumor (CCOT) is an uncommon developmental odontogenic lesion that demonstrates histopathologic diversity. Odontogenic tumors such as ameloblastoma have been reported to be associated with CCOT. In this paper, we report a case of ameloblastomatous CCOT in a 16-year-old girl with involvement of mandibular posterior region, which is an extremely rare histologic variant.
