Chart shows the percentage of Ki-67-positive cells in the epithelium of each of the three types of odontogenic cyst.
Odontogenic keratocyst are odontogenic cyst of epithelial origin first identified in 1876 derived from the remnants of the dental lamina.
Cysts associated with syndromes and non odontogenic cyst or cyst like other lesions were not included in study.
Botryoid odontogenic cyst (BOC) was first described in 1973 by Weathers and Waldron and it is usually described in the literature as a multicystic variant of lateral periodontal cyst (LPC) (1).
Odontogenic cysts are formed as a result of activation of entrapped odontogenic rest cells (Malassez, Serres, or enamel organ) within the jaw bones or gingivae.
Ameloblastoma can theoretically arise from remnants of the dental lamina, enamel organ of developing tooth, the epithelial lining of odontogenic cyst or basal cells of the oral mucosa.
Odontomas can be found in association with other dental abnormalities, such as the calcifying odontogenic cyst (COC).
The most prevalent odontogenic cyst was radicular cyst n=45(45%) followed by dentigerous cysts n=31(31%), odontogenic keratocysts n=14(14%), lateral periodontal cysts n=6(6%) and gingival cysts n=4(4%).
Due to similar signs and symptoms, nasolabial cyst may be misdiagnosed as radicular cyst, periapical abscess, odontogenic cyst such as dentigerous cyst, nasopalatine duct cyst, benign soft tissue tumours of minor salivary gland, dermoid and epidermoid cyst.
The dentigerous cyst is the most common type of a developmental odontogenic cyst.
The descriptive statistics and frequency for every type of Odontogenic cyst was calculated and their association with age, gender, site (maxilla or mandible) and associated tooth was noted.
These include soft tissue lesions such as salivary duct cyst (mucous retention cyst); oral heterotopic gastrointestinal cyst; dermoid and epidermoid cyst; and jaw bone lesions such as nasopalatine duct cyst with labial cortical perforation, periapical (radicular) cyst with cortical perforation, dentigerous cyst with cortical perforation, and glandular odontogenic cyst with cortical perforation.
