The dentinogenic ghost cell tumor (DGCT), a solid variant of the calcifying odontogenic cysts, is an uncommon odontogenic neoplasm which is aggressive and has a propensity for recurrence. It accounts for <0.5% of all odontogenic tumors which can exhibit intraosseous (central) or extraosseous (peripheral) localization. Till today, only 39 cases of central DGCT have been reported in English literature according to WHO 2017 Classification. Therapeutic intervention of central variant should be aggressive, local resection with adequate safety margins and monitoring the patient for recurrence as the lesions show recurrence rate up to 71%. The purpose of this paper is to describe a rare case report of central DGCT in a 57-year-old female patient with a brief review of literature which provides an update on the epidemiology, diagnostic and clinicopathological characteristics of the published cases.
