Sebaceous glands in the oral mucosa are said to be a normal variation, but the presence of the sebaceous gland in the jaw is extremely rare. Sebaceous gland differentiation in dentigerous cysts and in keratocystic odontogenic tumor (earlier odontogenic keratocysts) has been reported, but it has never been reported in any radicular cyst. We presented a case of a radicular cyst in an 18-year-old male with sebaceous gland differentiation.
