The inherent proliferative capacity of the cystic lining of odontogenic keratocysts and tendency to recur with enucleation led to more aggressive management being widely recommended. Larger lesions preclude the possibility of resection. A case is reported in which extensive odontogenic keratocysts involve almost the entire mandibular medulla of a patient with basal cell nevus syndrome, illustrating the importance of customising treatment to accommodate the clinical and radiographic presentation of individual cases. The clinical outcome of using Carnoy's solution versus marsupialization is radiographically demonstrated in this case. Diagnostic criteria for basal cell nevus syndrome and treatment modalities of odontogenic keratocysts are discussed.
