Glandular odontogenic cyst (GOC) is an extremely rare cyst of jaw bone with only 182 cases documented so far in the English literature. GOC is considered to be a locally aggressive lesion with high rate of recurrence. Anterior mandible is the most common site of involvement for GOC, involvement of the maxillary bone which is a rare occurrence. The clinical and radiographic finding of GOC are varied & often pathognomic. As clinical & radiographic findings are overlapping with those of other odontogenic cyst, a careful histopathological examination is needed to arrive at a definite diagnosis of GOC. In the present paper we reported a rare case of GOC in a 23yrs old male involving maxillary bone along with a review of literature focussing on clinical & radiological presentation and treatment outcome.
