The odontogenic keratocyst also called epidermoid cyst, was first described by Philipsen in 1956; it develops at the expense of remnants of the odontogenic epithelium included in the maxillae. It is characterized by a large keratinization of its squamous border, aggressive growth and a strong propensity for recidivism. After the root cyst and the follicular cyst, the odontogenic keratocyst is the most common cyst of the maxillae.
