OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to analyze the clinical and radiologic features of keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KCOT) and their recurrence patterns.
STUDY DESIGN: The authors undertook a retrospective analysis of 145 histopathologically proven KCOT. Recurrence was analyzed for age, sex, site, size, radiographic appearance, treatment, and association with nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS).
RESULTS: The mean age at presentation was 34.5 years, with a male predilection. Most KCOT (75.2%) were located in the mandible, with the posterior regions being most commonly affected. Radiographically, the majority of KCOT were unilocular (71.0%) in appearance, and 16.5% had scalloped margins. There was no significant association of recurrence rate with sex, site, size, radiographic appearance, and treatment. However, KCOT had significantly higher recurrence associated with age (P < .01) and NBCCS (P = .001).
CONCLUSIONS: Most clinical and radiologic features of KCOT were similar to earlier reports. Recurrence was significantly associated with second and eighth decades of life and NBCCS.
