A glandular odontogenic cyst (GOC), a rare type of cyst occurring in the jawbone, comprises about 0.2 % of all odontogenic cyst cases. Recurrence is likely, thus long-term follow-up examinations are necessary. The present patient was a 24-year-old Japanese female with a multilocular GOC that was extirpated following marsupialization. Two years after the initial extirpation, the GOC recurred and re-extirpation was performed, with no recurrence noted at two years after the second procedure. Although extirpation of a GOC after marsupialization can cause recurrence, it allows for preservation of teeth in the area of the lesion and maintenance of occlusion. The present case report includes a comparison of reports of GOC in Japan with those reported in other countries.
