BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Glandular odontogenic cyst is a rare developmental odontogenic cyst which most frequently occures in mandible. According to low incidence and unusual shape and location of this case, we decided to report the case.
CASE REPORT: Here we present an asymptomatic case in anterior part of maxilla that  radiographically was small and unilacular mimicking as a nasopalatine duct cyst. We have found it incidentally through radiographic evaluation before implant insertion. After enucleation and curettage, histopathologic evaluation revealed a glandular odontogenic cyst. In three months follow-up, no complication or recurrence was noticed, and the site of the lesion has filled with healthy bone.
CONCLUSION: In some cases enbloc resection is suggested for glandular odontogenic cysts, but according to the size and locularity, there was no need for aggressive treatment.
