Case Study
Calcifying odontogenic cyst (COC) is a diverse group of lesions exhibiting a wide variety of clinico-pathological and behavioural features. Recently, COC is considered to be presenting both as a cyst form and also as a tumor form based upon which the dualistic concept of COC classification was devised. Even after numerous classifications the exact nature of COC is still obscure. The present case report submits a case of COC associated with ameloblastoma, the sole purpose of which is to understand the variety in presentation of COC's in the jaws.
