Inflammatory jaw cysts comprise a group of lesions that arise as a result of epithelial proliferation within an inflammatory focus due to a number of causes. Radicular cysts are the most common inflammatory cysts. These cysts are found most commonly seen at the apices of the involved teeth. These cysts are seldom very large and very rarely cross the midline. There has been a review for Odontogenic keratocyst that it may grow to a very large size before it manifests clinically. Large size of OKC contributes to one of the reasons for considering it as a cystic neoplasm. In the present case, size of the cyst was enormous which was confusing which on histological examination was confirmed as a radicular cyst.
