Abstract

The odontogenic keratocyst (OKC) is a developmental cyst of the jaws of epithelial origin. This lesion is commonly found in the ascending ramus and posterior mandible, and can become quite large due to its rapid growth and its extension into the adjacent structures. Herein, we are reporting a case of odontogenic keratocyst involving the anterior mandible which was mimicking other cysts and tumors which occur in that region more frequently. On closer view into the case, the lesion was proved to be an OKC. The lesion was successfully treated by complete enucleation. Because of the uniqueness of this case, the clinical, radiological, and histological features of this cyst/tumor are discussed in this article.
