Background and Purpose: The odontogenic keratocyst (OKC) is an unusual cyst with a high recurrence rate. The most common site for OKCs is by far the mandible. The best treatment of OKC remains controversial. Recurrence rates ranging anywhere from less than 10% to more than 60% have been reported. The aim of our study was to evaluate marsupialization as a treatment option for OKC.
