Odontogenic keratocysts (OKC) now known as Keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KCOT), are developmental cysts of epithelial origin first described by Philipsen. There has been a great deal of interest in the odontogenic keratocyst (OKC) since it became apparent that it may grow to a large size before it manifests clinically and that, unlike other jaw cysts, it has a particular tendency to recur following surgical treatment. The purpose of this text book is to present a concise yet comprehensive data on the etiopathogenesis, clinical features, rate and site of occurance, recurrence, malignant transformation and management of Odontogenic Keratocyst which demands prompt diagnosis and treatment with follow up.
