AUTHOR(S): Sushobhan Das, Harish Saluja, Seemit Shah, Anuj Dadhich, Pulkit Khandelwal and Vinayak More
Keratocystic odontogenic tumor (KOT) is a benign odontogenic tumor with a potentially aggressive and infiltrative behavior. KOT most commonly occurs in mandible and demonstrates a unilocular, round, oval, scalloped radiolucent area, while large lesions may appear multilocular. An important characteristic feature of KOT is its propensity to grow in an antero-posterior direction within medullary cavity of bone causing minimal expansion. Definitive diagnosis relies on histological examination.
The lesion described later, was removed surgically via an intraoral approach under general anesthesia and histologically reported as a Keratocystic Odontogenic Tumour.
