A 67-year-old man presented with a swelling on the right side of the mandible. Histopathological investigation of a biopsy revealed a peripheral dentogenic ghost cell tumour. Treatment consisted of thorough excochleation of the abnormality and 2 years after treatment, the patient was free of recurrence. In the literature, a distinction is made between peripheral and central dentogenic ghost cell tumours, which, like calcifying odontogenic cysts, are considered to be ghost cell odontogenic lesions. These are rarely occurring abnormalities, where the chances of recurrence after proper treatment are limited. The central dentogenic ghost cell tumour has a greater chance of recurring locally.
