Ghost cell odontogenic carcinoma (GCOC) is the malignant counterpart of calcifying cystic odontogenic tumour and dentinogenic ghost cell tumour. This is the case of a middle-aged male who presented with a slow-growing maxillary tumour. He was asymptomatic until pain symptoms developed prior to initial presentation. The excised tumour was diagnosed as a ghost cell odontogenic carcinoma. More case reports are needed for further understanding of this rare malignant odontogenic tumour.
