Keratocystic Odontogenic Tumor- A Rapidly Growing and Painless Tumor: A Case Report
The cyst known as a "odontogenic keratocyst" (OKC) has a dental origin and exhibits aggressive clinical characteristics, such as a high recurrence rate. After observing its biological behaviour and genetic anomalies such as neoplastic growth, keratocystic odontogenic tumour (KCOT) has been classified as a "tumour." In order to distinguish the lesion from the orthokeratinizing variety, which is currently known as an OKC, WHO working group recommended the term KCOT in 2005. This article emphasizes about the clinical features, radiological features as well as treatment methods of OKC.
