It was, later, renamed as calcifying cystic odontogenic tumor (CCOT) in the WHO classification devised in 2005 due to its histological complexity, morphological diversity and aggressive proliferation. Gorlin cyst was, later, re-named several times including Gorlin cyst, calcifying odontogenic cyst (COC), calcifying ghost cell odontogenic cyst, calcifying cystic odontogenic tumor (CCOT) and dentogenic ghost cell tumor. The present case report briefs a case of Gorlin cyst in a 21 year old female which was diagnosed during the diagnostic work-up.
