Dentinogenic ghost cell tumor (DGCT) is an uncommon odontogenic tumor considered to be the solid, tumorous variant of calcifying odontogenic cyst. DGCT is characterized by islands of ameloblastoma-like epithelial cells that resemble the enamel organ, the presence of ghost cells, and dentinoid material. This article reports a rare case of dentinogenic ghost cell tumor associated with an odontoma in an adult patient, with a review of the literature. To the best of the authors’ knowledge, there have only been four case reports of DGCT associated with odontoma, all of which occurred in children and adults younger than 30 years old.
