Abstract

Odontogenic Keratocyst (OKC) is a cyst of tooth origin with an aggressive clinical behaviour including a high recurrence rate of approximately 25% to 60%. Based upon its aggressive behaviour, World Health Organization redesignated it as Keratocystic Odontogenic Tumour. It is generally thought to be derived from remnants of the dental lamina (Rests of Seres), traumatic implantation or down growth of the basal cell layer of the surface epithelium/reduced enamel epithelium of the dental follicle. Treatment modalities include marsupialization and enucleation, combined with adjuvant cryotherapy or chemical cautery or Carnoy's solution and marginal/radical resection. The purpose of this study was to evaluate different surgical treatment methods and to propose a rational treatment for its management.
