A large multilocular radiolucent lesion involving the anterior mandible was noted incidentally in a 44-year-old woman who sought routine dental treatment. An incisional biopsy revealed that this lesion represented an uncommon developmental odontogenic cyst known as a glandular odontogenic cyst. The lesion was removed surgically, followed by reconstruction with a right anterior iliac crest bone graft. This article reviews the radiographic, clinical, and histopathologic appearance of this rare odontogenic cyst, as well as the surgical management and the patient's subsequent prosthetic rehabilitation.
