The odontogenic ghost cell tumor (OGCT) is the rare, neoplastic variant of the calcifying odontogenic cyst (COC). To date, there have been only four reports of malignant OGCTs, in five patients. We report an additional case of a malignant odontogenic ghost cell tumor that involved the right maxilla of a 20-year-old man. Our report includes its immunocytochemical and ultrastructural characterization.
