Portuguese Abstract: The glandular odontogenic cyst (GOC) is an uncommon jaw bone cyst of odontogenic origin with unpredictable and potentially aggressive behaviour. It also has the propensity to grow to a large size and tendency towards recurrence. GOC can be easily misdiagnosed microscopically as a central mucoepidermoid carcinoma. This paper reports a case of GOC in a 56-year-old male and reviews the main criteria for accurate diagnosis. The diagnosis of GOC can be extremely difficult due to the rarity of the cyst and lack of clear diagnostic criteria.
