Abstract EN

The odontogenic keratocysts are developmental cysts of the jaws that require proper diagnosis due to their potential for local aggressive growth, recurrences, and association with an inherited syndrome.

The renaming of odontogenic keratocysts as keratocystic odontogenic tumors in 2005 then, after 12 years, denomination as an odontogenic cystic lesion, by the WHO in 2017, has been one of the most debatable changes in the terminology of odontogenic lesions in recent years.

This article reviews the etiopathogenesis, clinical, radiographic, histopathological, immunohistochemical and treatment; with the aim of describing the importance of this lesion.
