Odontogenic Cysts (Keratocyst) Summary

Description: Cysts found in the jaws and arising from epithelium involved in tooth formation. They include follicular cysts (e.g., primordial cyst, dentigerous cyst, multilocular cyst), lateral periodontal cysts, and radicular cysts. They may become keratinized (odontogenic keratocysts). Follicular cysts may give rise to ameloblastomas and, in rare cases, undergo malignant transformation.

Also Known As: Keratocyst; Cyst, Odontogenic; Cysts, Odontogenic; Odontogenic Cyst; Keratocysts
