COSTA TRUCCO, C; QUINTANILLA SFEIR, M; HIDALGO RIVAS, A  e  AMIGO VASQUEZ, S. Calcifying odontogenic cyst. Analysis of clinical and imaging characteristics in case reports. Av Odontoestomatol [online]. 2023, vol.39, n.6, pp.230-237.  Epub 18-Mar-2024. ISSN 2340-3152.


Calcifying odontogenic cyst (COC) is a rare odontogenic cyst of the jaws, which in many cases is associated with other pathologies and can generate differences in terms of clinical and imaging presentation. The aim of this article was to determinate the clinical and imaging characteristics of intraosseous COC, without association to other pathologies, published in case reports.

Material and methods:

A search in PubMed, Scopus, Epistemonikos and Web of Science was performed, for case reports of intraosseous COC, without association to other pathologies, which had imaging examinations and histopathological diagnosis.


20 articles were included, with 21 clinical cases. COC was found to occur mainly in the second decade of life, male sex, and mandibular posterior area. Swelling was present in most cases. Pain, mucosal alterations, and dental mobility were observed in a lower percentage. Radiographically, a mixed density lesion, unilocular, with defined and regular limits, which generates cortical expansion was observed. Perforation, tooth displacement and root resorption were uncommon. The size was mainly larger than 3cm.


Clinical and imaging information was found to be scarce in all articles included in this review. Most of the characteristics that did not coincide with what is reported by the literature could be explained by the fact that published cases are usually atypical. In this review, different COC characteristics than those previously reported were found, which are relevant for differential diagnosis.
