OPONDO, F; SHAIK, S; OPPERMAN, J  and  NORTJE, CJ. Glandular odontogenic cyst: case series and summary of the literature. S. Afr. dent. j. [online]. 2019, vol.74, n.9, pp.502-507. ISSN 0375-1562.

The glandular odontogenic cyst (GOC) remains a rare entity. It was initially named "sialo-odontogenic cyst" by Padayachee and Van Wyk in 1987 when they reported the first two cases. Thereafter the term glandular odontogenic cyst was suggested by Gardner et al. in 1988 and was subsequently adopted by the WHO.1 In addition to its rarity, it has non-pathognomonic clinical and radiological features and hence can mimic other lesions. Since its recognition as an entity by the WHO in 1992, only two further cases of glandular odontogenic cyst have been seen at the authors' institution and are hereby reported together with a summary of the review articles in the English literature.

Keywords : Developmental jaw cyst; glandular cyst; recurrent cyst.
