Odontogenic Keratocyst (OKC) is a benign, intraosseous, odontogenic cyst which originates from the basal cells of overlying epithelium or from the dental lamina remnants. Clinically, they are presented as asymptomatic swellings, although can sometimes be associated with pain. Growth of an OKC leads to expansion and destruction of bone as it infiltrates the tissue around it. It is commonly seen in males between the second and fourth decades of life. The aim of this study is to report on the clinicopathological characteristics of an odontogenic keratocyst in a 9-month-old female patient and posterior rehabilitation with a removable maxillary expander.
