Glucose level in the aspirated cystic fluid of radicular cyst, odontogenic keratocyst and dentigerous cyst

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Shamshad Begum, Dr. Sonia Gupta and Dr. Gaurav Kataria
ABSTRACT:Background: Cystic fluid is hyperosmolar exudates that contain various proteins, carbohydrates, and glucoconjugates. This hyperosmolarity is responsible for the cyst expansion and enlargement.
Aims and Objective: To determine the glucose contents of the cystic fluid in order to assess cellular metabolism. Materials and Method: A study was carried out on 5 cases of radicular cyst, 5 cases of odontogenic keratocyst and 5 cases of dentigerous cyst. Cystic fluid aspiration was obtained from all the three cysts for the determination of glucose level by Trinder’s method.
Results: In the present study, the mean glucose content was greater in radicular cyst followed by the odontogenic keratocyst and dentigerous cyst. The p-value was found to be stastically non-significant.
Conclusion: The lower glucose content of dentigerous cyst revealed minimum level of cellular metabolism than that of radicular cyst and odontogenic keratocyst.
