The cholesterol granuloma, a rare entity in the oral cavity, has been given little attention in the dental literature. As a result, there is a lack of accurate data regarding its nomenclature, pathogenesis, and histologic appearance. A new case of cholesterol granuloma in the oral cavity embedded in an odontoma is presented. The literature is reviewed and the nomenclature is clarified.
