ABSTRACT

Aim: The purpose of this study was to determine and collate the prevalence of odontogenic cysts and tumors in Kancheepuram dist. of Tamil Nadu over a period of 8yrs and to compare with other national and international studies. Materials and methods: Data for this study was ascertained from the reports of patients diagnosed with OCs and OTs between 2009-2017. Case records of the patients that fit the histological classification of 2002 were involved in the study and the variables of age, gender, site and location were analysed. Results: In a total of 2156 biopsies, OCs accounted for 17.9%and OTs 3.4% of all lesions. Mean age occurrence was 34.5 yrs for OCs and 29.5 yrs for OTs. Males showed predilection by 56.29% for OCs and female predilection by 56.5% for OTs. The commonest OC was radicular cyst and tumor was ameloblastoma. Conclusion: This study provides epidemiological information on OCs and OTs at an institutional level. Prevalence and frequencies of these lesions can be studied at a global level to further obtain their prevalence, incidence, behaviour and distribution.
