Odontogenic keratocyst (OKC) is a common developmental odontogenic cyst affecting maxillofacial region. It shows peak incidence in second and third decade . Presence of multiple odontogenic keratocyst without syndromic association is very uncommon. Multiple Odontogenic Keratocysts are principle features of nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS; Gorlin-Goltz syndrome). A case of non syndromic multiple odontogenic keratocysts is reported here so as to add to the growing number of such cases in the literature. As odontogenic keratocyst spreads by way of bone marrow, results in more destruction ahead of any clinical manifestation. Therefore, detection in initial stage and intervention are essential in preventing extensive destruction.
