Dentigerous cysts (DCs) and odontomas are lesions of odontogenic origin relatively common in the oral cavity with a rare recurrence after treatment. The purpose of this study is to present a case of association of odontoma with DC in the mandible of a young patient and to describe all cases published in English literature to date. A 16-year-old male patient presented with a well-defined unilocular radiolucent lesion associated with impacted mandibular right canine. Mesially, there was another lesion, mixed with small radiopaque structures, similar to dental structures surrounded by a radiolucent halo. The diagnosis of DC associated with compound odontoma was made. This case report associated with the literature review of other reports highlights that the association of DC with odontoma is rare and further studies are needed to investigate the probable etiology of this association.
