Glandular odontogenic cyst is a newly determined jaw entity with aggressive behavior and a high rate of recurrence. There is histopathologic resemblance to other lesions of the jaw such as intraosseous mucoepidermoid carcinoma. Although enucleation and curettage are not the treatment of choice for this cystic lesion, they comprise the most common method. On the other hand, filling the defect is a controversial matter, especially in lesions with large size. We introduce 4 cases of GOC, of which 2 are cases of recurrence. We applied bone material substitutes in 3 of these cases with success.
