Odontogenic Keratocysts (OKCs) are a clinical entity with a characteristic growth pattern, microscopic picture and biological behaviour. They arise from the proliferation of the cells of the dental lamina and can occur in patients of all ages. They more commonly involve the mandible, mostly the posterior body, the angle and ramus of mandible. These cysts are often asymptomatic and may attain large size without significant deformation. Many a times, they can be an incidental finding during routine dental X-ray examination. Compared to other types of jaw cysts, OKCs have a striking tendency to recur.
