Odontogenic keratocyst (OKC), also known as keratocystic odontogenic tumor, is categorized as one of the developmental epithelial cysts, which accounts 10%–20% of all cystic lesions in jaws. Considering its high recurrence rate, combative treatment modalities such as enucleation and jaw resection are suggested. This case report aims to emphasize clinical, radiological and histological overview of OKC with conservative approach marsupialization using thermoform surgical splint in a 9-year-old female patient with no recurrence at 3-year follow-up.
