A neoplastic (solid), calcifying ghost cell tumour is a rare subtype of Calcifying Odontogenic Cyst. The most important features of this pathologic entity are histopathological features, which include a proliferating cystic lining which demonstrates characteristic "Ghost" epithelial cells which have a propensity to calcify. We are reporting a case of a 61-year-old male with a painful swelling in the lower right jaw. Radiology showed a bilocular, well circumscribed, radiolucent lesion in the mandible, which measured 2x1 cm, with radiopaque structures within it. Tooth extraction was done, with enucleation of the lesion, which histopathologically revealed features of a solid, calcifying ghost cell tumour, with an intraosseous variant. The case has been presented, with a brief review of literature.
