Odontogenic cysts are classified as cysts that derive from odontogenic epithelium and occur in the jaw's tooth-bearing regions. This pathology is
treated with cystectomy, marsupialization or decompression of odontogenic cyst.10. We present with a case report of a large multilocular OKC
which was treated with FNAC followed by enucleation, chemical cauterization with Carnoy's solution and a chin graft. In addition to reducing
intraluminal pressure in the pathological cavity, this operation allowed the lesion to gradually decrease volume "with a gradual increase in bone
apposition" and maintained the adjacent teeth's integrity.
