Odontogenic Keratocyst

Odontogenic keratocyst, formerly also called primordial cyst, is defined by the presence of an epithelial lining not exceeding 10 cell layers in thickness, palisading of the basal cells, and a parakeratinised, corrugated surface [114].

Odontogenic keratocysts are common lesions [147, 148, 149]. They show a wide age range with a peak frequency in the 2nd and 3rd decades, are more common in males then in females and occur twice as frequently in the mandible as in the maxilla. Involvement of the gingival soft tissues has also been reported [26]. They also occur in cases of nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome and in patients with Marfan's syndrome [11, 50, 186].
