Abstract Share this page

The odontogenic keratocyst is a tumor-like cystic with a capsule that is formed of squamous epithelium originating from dental lamina or from primordial odontogenic epithelium. Radio- logically, radicular resorption is rare. The most important differen- tial diagnosis is the follicular cyst that has a characteristic squa- mous coating of a variable thickness. Treatment for odontogenic keratocysts is the object of constant discussion as the rate of recu- rrence published is high (around 30%). The standard treatment is enucleation, but given that the capsule is very fine and friable, it tends to break into fragments during extraction. Incomplete resec- tion of the capsule, as well as the presence of microcysts in the surrounding connective tissue, makes recurrence or tumor persis- tence more likely. The alternative is treatment by means of decom- pression and marsupialization.
