The treatment of an odontogenic keratocyst of the mandible with a combination of enucleation and cryosurgery has been presented with a 5-year follow-up without recurrence. This case is presented to stimulate interest in the technique and to add a useful option to enucleation alone and enucleation with chemical cauterization. As more cases with long-term follow-up are documented, it is hoped that cryosurgery as an adjunct to enucleation will prove to be a conservative and reliable method of lowering the recurrence rate associated with this lesion.
