The glandular odontogenic cyst (GOC) is a recently recognized rare developmental odontogenic cyst showing an aggressive behavior and accounts for 0.012 to 1.3% of all jaw cysts. This cyst is possibly derived from rests of dental lamina and comprises both secretory elements and stratified squamous epithelium. Many authors have suggested that the cyst mainly occurs in 4th and 5' decades in the mandible and presents as an expansion with or without pain or Paraesthesia. The treatment of choice is excision rather than enucleation in order to obviate recurrence. Here, we report a case of GOC in a 45-year-old female patient, in the posterior region of the maxilla, which is quite rare.
