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: After the initial surgery, the patient underwent clinical examinations every 3 months and PR and CT examinations every 6 months. In August 2010, a recurrence of the KCOT was suspected based on PR and CT findings. A CT scan revealed three radiolucent regions in the mandibular bone extending from the mesial side of tooth 43 to the distal side of tooth 45 (Fig. 4). A second operation was performed under nasotracheal intubation. Three cystic lesions were enucleated, the surrounding bone was partially removed, and CS was applied for 1 min followed by irrigation with sodium chloride, as in the first operation. Histological analysis of the specimen confirmed a diagnosis of a recurrent KCOT. No complications occurred during surgery, and post-surgical healing was satisfactory.
