The Odontogenic Keratocyst (OKC), first described by Phillipsen in 1956, has been reclassified as odontogenic neoplasm and has been renamed as Keratocystic Odontogenic Tumor (KCOT) as reported in WHO classification of head and neck tumors in 2005. Odontogenic keratocysts are benign intraosseous tumors of odontogenic origin that occur most commonly in the jaw. In particular, they have a predilection for the angle and ascending ramus of the mandible. The recurrent rate of odontogenic keratocyst is 25 – 30 percent. A case of odontogenic keratocyst in 60 years old patient is presented involving mandibular third molar ramus area which was recurred after 3 years.
