Treatment for Recurrent Odontogenic Keratocysts - Exam 74
by Goddard, Brooks, Lewis, Lewis
Controversy remains in understanding both the development and treatment for the
odontogenic keratocyst (OKC). With recent changes in nomenclature recognizing
the odontogenic keratocyst as a benign tumor, the debate over the proper course of
treatment to limit recurrence and morbidity will continue. This study presents two
cases where conservative treatment failed to prevent recurrence and each patient
underwent resection of aggressive, multicystic OKCs to provide the best chance for definitive care without recurrence and limited morbidity.
1) In 2005, the World Health Organization classified the odontogenic keratocyst as a benign neoplasm under the term keratocystic odontogenic tumor due
ability to grow rapidly
evidence of intrinsic growth potential
multiple lesions occurring at once
response to treatment with chemotherapy
2) The mean age group for occurrence of the
odontogenic keratocyst is:
10 years old
20 years old
40 years old
65 years and older
3) The most common location for the odontogenic
4) Which of the following statement(s) is true
regarding the odontogenic keratocyst:
The odontogenic keratocyst may present as unilocular or multilocular radiolucencies.
The recurrence rate of odontogenic keratocysts may be related to portions of the lesion left behind after surgery and/or daughter cysts present beyond the visible margins of the lesion.
Expansion of the odontogenic keratocyst typically occurs in an anterior/posterior direction along the marrow space.
All of the above
5) The following condition(s) is associated with
formation of multiple odontogenic keratocysts:
hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia
nevoid basal cell carcinoma (gorlin) syndrome
