Abstract

Sections of 565 radicular cysts were examined for keratinization of epithelium. 4 cysts showed keratinization, 2 of ortho and 2 of para type. Due to other histological features typical for odontogenic keratocysts, it was concluded that these cysts were odontogenic keratocysts that occurred in the periapical region of the involved teeth.
