Keratocystic odontogenic tumor: An overview of management protocols

Indraniil Roy, Archana Louis

Abstract


Typically, the categorization of odontogenic cysts is complex and can cause a dilemma equally for specialists as well as pathologists. The odontogenic keratocyst (OKC) is definitely a developmental cyst, which is worthy of special consideration. It possesses typical histopathological as well as clinical attributes; however, the thing that makes this particular cyst unique is defi nitely its overly aggressive tendencies and also a high recurrence rate. In spite of several classes and nomenclature, sadly the specialists nevertheless have to encounter challenges in the control over this frequently observed jaw lesion. This particular brief article is an attempt to deliver a breakdown of numerous facets of OKC with focus on recurrence and the need for a perfect treatment of keratocystic odontogenic tumor.
