Abstract

Abstract A case of the rare so-called odontogenic gingival epithelial hamartoma (OGEH) located to the anterior maxilla in a 35-year-old woman is presented. Histology showed a small, well-circumscribed epithelial, hamartomatous lesion located to the gingival lamina propria, and totally separated from the covering oral epithelium. The lesion was composed of multiple clusters of well-delineated, uniform-sized, polyhedral odontogenic epithelial cells several of which showed clear cell differentiation. Only two of the previously published nine cases of OGEH showed histological features comparable to those reported here.
