Aim: The aim of this study was to assess the treatment of keratocystic odontogenic tumor using enucleation and Carnoy's solution with peripheral ostectomy. Materials and Methods: Twenty-nine patients (14 females and 15 males) with age range from 12 to 62 years were included in this study and followed up for 7 years; all the patients were treated in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery of the Specialized Surgeries Teaching Hospital (Al-Shaheed Ghazi Al-Hariri Hospital-Medical City, Baghdad, Iraq). Enucleation followed by peripheral ostectomy and the application of Carnoy's solution is the standardized method of treatment. Results: This study showed (32.7%) unilocular radiolucency for the lesions (19.9%) as multilocular radiolucency. Furthermore, it showed that the recurrence rate by this method was 0% with a minimum neurosensory disturbance. Conclusion: The complications and morbidity originating from the application of Carnoy's solution occurred less frequently and were less serious than those associated with resection while the recurrence rate is 0% which is equal to the recurrence rate of resection.
