The odontogenic keratocyst (OKC) is an odontogenic developmental cyst of oral and maxillofacial region which has gained very special attention since last two decades due to its dilemmatic nature. It has specific histopathological and clinical findings but still the cyst is very special due to its aggressive behavior and high recurrence rate. Commonest site is mandible (66.8%), however different regions of maxilla can be involved. We report a rare case of an OKC involving maxilla.
