The Odontogenic Keratocyst (OKC) is a relatively common developmental odontogenic cyst arising from the dental lamina remnants. Multiple OKCs are rare and occur either in syndromic and non-syndromic groups. The Keratocyst demands special consideration because of its aggressive clinical nature and propensity for recurrence. Epithelial proliferation plays a significant role in behaviour of OKC and suggests that more aggressive behaviour is present in case of syndromic OKC than non-syndromic ones. Here we report a case of multiple OKCs in a 20 year old female patient having simultaneous occurrence of cystic lesions in maxilla and mandible without any syndromic manifestations. Comparison between syndromic and non syndromic multiple OKCs is also discussed.
