Abstract

The odontogenic ghost cell carcinoma (OGCC) is the malignant counterpart of a calcifying cystic odontogenic tumor and dentinogenic ghost cell tumor. We report herein on a case of OGCC of the maxilla. A 31-year-old male visited our department complaining of a 2-year history of left cheek swelling. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a huge maxillary tumor invading both sides of the maxilla. A biopsy was performed, and the lesion was diagnosed as OGCC. After bilateral total maxillectomy, radiotherapy was performed. Neither local recurrence nor distant metastasis has been seen for 14 months since surgery. Previous reports of OGCC are also reviewed.<br>
