VILLARROEL CASTRO, P.; FARINA SIRANDONI, R.  and  ESPINOZA SANTANDER, I.. Gorlin cyst associated with odontoma: Case report with surgical treatment. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2005, vol.27, n.6, pp.360-367. ISSN 2173-9161.

Gorlin cyst is an odontogenic cyst that may appear as two types, one cystic and surrounded by epithelium of a benign nature, and the other a locally aggressive neoplasm. The case is presented of an 18-year-old female that had experienced an increase in facial volume in the left infraorbital area that was painless. Total exeresis of the lesion was carried out. The histopathologic study provided the definitive diagnosis of Gorlin cyst associated with odontoma. After a follow-up of three years, facial symmetry was reestablished, there was adequate regeneration of bone and of the adjacent tissue, and there were no signs of relapse.

Keywords : Gorlin Cyst; Calcifying Odontogenic Cyst; Odontogenic Cyst.
