Treatment and prognosis

Surgical excision with peripheral osseous curettage or ostectomy is the preferred method of management. This more aggressive approach for a cystic lesion is justified by the high recurrence rate associated with OKCs/KCOTs. Some have advocated surgical decompression and marsupialization to permit cyst shrinkage, followed by enucleation as an alternative.
