術後12年で再発を認めた下顎骨体部腺性歯原性嚢胞の1例 A case of glandular odontogenic cyst recurring 12 years after primary treatment in the mandible
Glandular odontogenic cyst (GOC), first described in 1988 by Gardner <I>et. al</I>, is a comparatively rare jawbone cyst of odontogenic origin, which shares some features with both botryroid odontogenic cysts and mucous-producing salivary gland tumors. Although GOC has a high rate of recurrence, cases of recurrence have not been reported in the Japanese literature.<BR>This paper describes a case of GOC arising in the mandible of a 58-year-old man. The cyst recurred 12 years after primary treatment. Diagnosis and treatment of the lesion are discussed.
