CALCIFYING ODONTOGENIC CYST: CONTROVERSIES, CLINICAL FEATURES, HISTOPATHOLOGY & TREATMENT
AUTHOR: Sanketh DS, MDS
INTRODUCTION & ETIOLOGY
Calcifying odontogenic cyst (COC) was first described by Gorlin in 1962. It is a cystic lesion which histologically shows an ameloblastomatous lining along with ghost cells and focal calcifications. COC is thought to arise from the reduced enamel epithelium surrounding the unerupted crown or from the remnants of the dental lamina.
