Background: The present study was conducted to assess distribution of odontogenic cysts
in Indian population.
Materials & Methods: 280 odontogenic cysts was retrieved from the department.
Hematoxylin/eosin-stained slides of OCs or nonspecific cyst diagnoses were evaluated and
selected.
Results: Common odontogenic cysts were adult gingival cyst (15), COC (9), dentigerous
cyst (21), paradental cyst (9), OKC (42), lateral periodontal cyst (1), glandular odontogenic
cyst (1), radicular cyst (168) and residual cyst (14). Maximum cases were seen in age group
21-30 years (80). The difference was significant (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: Maximum cases were seen in age group 21-30 years and common
odontogenic cysts were radicular cyst and OKC.
