Abstract

Background Keratocystic odontogenic tumor (KCOT) is one of the most common odontogenic neoplasms. There are many kinds of treatment modalities which can be a conservative method, such as enucleation or an aggressive method, such as enucleation followed by cryosurgery and radical surgical tactics with bone resection. In the literature a relatively high recurrence rate reported for KCOT with a range of 5-70 % depending on the method of treatment.
