Keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KCOTs) arise from remnants of epithelial structures associated with the development of teeth and occur predominantly intraosseously. In rare occasions they can appear extraosseously in the gingiva as peripheral counterparts; only 15 cases have been reported to date. Evenmore rare are cases of KCOTs of the buccal soft tissues. The aim of this report is to present a rare case of KCOT affecting the buccal soft tissue as an original site and a review of the literature regarding diagnostic and therapeutic options.
