The odontogenic keratocyst is a cyst of odontogenic origin that exhibits a keratinised epithelial lining. Odontogenic keratocyst has been the topic of numerous investigators and is known for its potentially aggressive behavior and significant rate of recurrence. This cyst often occurs as a solitary lesion in the angle of the mandible, however in some, multiple such cysts may occur in association with a syndrome called «DQ»Nevoid basal cell syndrome«DQ». Here we report a case of a bilateral odontogenic keratocyst in a 60 yr old male patient, wherein multiple cysts were present but, without any other associated manifestations.
