keratocyst

ker·a·to·cyst

(ker'ă-tō-sist),
Odontogenic cyst derived from remnants of the dental lamina and appearing as a unilocular or multilocular radiolucency that may produce jaw expansion; epithelial lining is characterized microscopically by a uniform thickness, a corrugated superficial layer of parakeratin, and a prominent basal layer composed of palisaded columnar cells; associated with the bifid rib basal cell nevus syndrome.

keratocyst

/ker·a·to·cyst/ (ker´ah-to-sist) an odontogenic cyst lined with a layer of keratinized squamous epithelium and commonly associated with a primordial cyst.

keratocyst

[ker′ətōsist′]
a thin-walled, tooth-forming cyst lined by keratinizing epithelium. It may be solitary or part of a multiple lesion, most frequently in the posterior body or ramus of the mandible, and may or may not be associated with teeth.
