Dentinogenic ghost cell tumor (DGCT) was first described by Praetorius et al. in 1981 and now believed to be the tumor counterpart of the calcifying odontogenic cyst (COC). DGCT is an extremely rare odontogenic tumor and accounts for only 2% to 14% of all COCs. A case of DGCT in a 40-year-old female patient is being reported.
