Long-term observation of a large keratocystic odontogenic tumour of the mandible treated by a single enucleation procedure: A case report and literature review

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

Keratocystic odontogenic tumours (KCOTs) are rare, benign lesions of the jaw.

We present a 49-year-old woman with a rare, large KCOT of the mandible.

We describe a treatment method involving enucleation with Carnoy’s solution plus inserting a titanium plate.

Although the patient showed recurrence once, she has not shown recurrence since 2010.

Our approach was effective for the treatment of a large KCOT with tooth preservation.

Mentions: In May 2009, a 42-year-old woman developed a sudden, painless swelling in the posterior region of the right side of her mandible that continued for approximately 14 days. The patient had experienced neither pathological mobility of the teeth nor malocclusion. Her medical and family histories were unremarkable. A panoramic radiographic (PR) examination had not been previously performed. Subsequent PR imaging revealed a large, radiolucent, expanding lesion involving the majority of the mandibular bone from the distal side of tooth 35 to the distal side of tooth 45 with no evidence of root resorption (Fig. 1). An axial computed tomography (CT) scan revealed a well-defined multilocular cystic lesion. On the right side, a perforation in the cortical region was examined (approximately 10 mm in diameter) with the overlying soft tissue. Biopsy findings were suggestive of a KCOT.
