Abstract

Aim

To reevaluate all cases previously diagnosed as calcifying odontogenic cyst (COC) from the archives of the Department of Oral Pathology at Mashhad Faculty of Dentistry from 1978 to 2008.

Materials and methods

Clinical histories and microscopic slides of all cases diagnosed as COC were reviewed and analyzed statistically. The information about patients such as age, sex, clinical features, radiographic view and other necessary data was gathered from biopsy files.

Results

The majority of cases occurred in mandible and four cases were peripherally. Thirteen cases were associated with other odontogenic tumors and 11 cases were odontoma type. In two cases, recurrence was reported after surgical treatment which underwent malignant transformation.

Conclusion

Calcifying cystic odontogenic tumor (CCOT) in Iranian population occurs in younger age group with slightly male predilection and more mandibular, unicystic and simple type.

Clinical significance

It is better to address the noncystic CCOT lesions with their specific terms in order to make histopathological characteristics clear.
