Cysts of the Jaws

Cysts of the jaws are classified into several categories depending on histogenesis and aetiology. Those that arise from odontogenic epithelium are called odontogenic, those that have their source in other epithelial structures are known as non-odontogenic. Among the odon-togenic cysts, developmental and inflammatory types can be distinguished [73]. By definition, cysts are lined by epithelium. There are, however, also cavities in the jaw lacking such an epithelial investment that are also discussed under this heading. The various entities are listed in Table 4.1.
