Odontogenic keratocyst is a cyst of dental lamina origin with a high recurrence rate and well defined histologic criteria. Radiographically, odontogenic keratocyst presents as a unilocular or multilocular radiolucency of the jaws. Its capacity for aggressive growth and recurrence even after many years makes it an entity of special interest. Recently, neoplastic transformations have also been reported. They must therefore be distinguished from other cysts and tumors of the jaws. We report a case of fortuitous bilobular radiolucency in the left ascending ramus of a patient, who reported with a clinical presentation of submandibular space cellulitis.
