Abstract

The granular cell odontogenic tumor is an extremely rare odontogenic neoplasm which about 38 cases has been reported with sufficient documentation in the literature. It has a prominent predilection to occur in the posterior of mandible of middle-aged women. Here, we report a case of mandibular granular cell odontogenic tumor in a 57-year-old female with chief complaint of swelling and tooth mobility. As rarity of these lesions, their clinical behavior and prognosis are not clear; hence, reporting more such cases may be beneficial to correct diagnosis and prevent unnecessary treatment.
