We report a rare case of dentinogenic ghost cell tumor (DGCT) associated with complex composite odontoma in a 17 years male affecting the posterior segment of the mandible. On radiographic examination, there was a well-defined multilocular radiolucency surrounding the radio opaque mass with respect to 44, 45 and 46. Histopathologically it showed ameloblastomatous proliferation with dentin like areas and ghost cells. It was associated with tooth like structures consisting of dentin, cementum and pulp like areas. DGCT with odontoma is extremely rare with only two cases being reported in literature till date. The management with its rare occurrence is discussed here.
