Abstract

The tumor is surrounded by stratified squamous parakeratinized or orthokeratinized epithelium and has invasive or infiltrative behavior.

In this case report we describes an unusual case of OKC in the condylar region and its infiltration into parotid gland which is very rare and minimal clinical presentation indicative of a tumor.Keywords: Odontogenic Keratocyst, Keratocystic Odontogenic Tumor, Infiltration, Parotid, Mandibular condyle.
