The odontogenic keratocyst (OKC) has been always an interesting subject to debate since Philipsen first described it as a distinct entity in 1956. Nevertheless, the large variability and the lack of homogeneity between patients in the different studies did not allow to develop universally recognized guidelines for the KOT treatment. The aim of this paper is to present a new surgical technique to approach to high dimensions KOT located at the level of mandibular ramus and condyle, consisting in enucleation and courettage under endoscopic vision.
