A 26-year-old man presented with a swelling in the right side of face and CT scan revealed a destructive tumor in the right maxilla. Tumor recurred within 5 years of its excision and histopathological examination revealed a clear cell odontogenic carcinoma. The rarity of this tumor, occurrence in maxilla and young age of the patient are some of the rare features which need documentation. The importance of its diagnosis and various differential diagnoses are discussed. Pathology & Oncology Research, Vol 8, Nr 4, 283-285, 2002

Key words: clear cell odontogenic tumors; clear cell ameloblastoma; maxilla; young age
