Recurrence is the main reason for the failure of the KCOT treatment, and it depends on therapy approach (10); for example, recurrence rates following enucleation, curettage, cryosurgery, marsupialization, Carnoy's solution and decompression are approximately 54.55% (11, 12), 19.2% (13), 3% (14), 21.4% (15), 6.7% (12), and 25% (16), respectively.
