Odontogenic keratocyst (OKC) originates from the dental lamina and is more commonly seen in the posterior mandible than in the maxilla. OKC is the most aggressive cyst of the oral cavity and is known for its rapid growth and its tendency to invade bone of the adjacent tissues. The recurrence rate of OKC is very high due to various reasons debated upon. Cases of OKC have shown the presence of calcifications, dentinoid formation and ossification. Here, we report the first case of OKC in a 27-year-old male showing granular cell changes.
