Objectives: Since World Health Organization reclassified the odontogenic keratocyst as a keratocystic odontogenic tumor(KCOT) in 2005, management of KCOT remains controversial. The purpose of the this study is to present a current concept of the treatment of the KCOT. Methods: Recent articles were focused on the method of the surgical therapy and the recurrence rate of KCOT. Results: The treatment modality is divided into conservative treatment-such as simple enucleation with or without curettage or marsupialization-and aggressive treatment including peripheral ostectomy, chemical curettage with Carnoy`s solution, and resection. Conclusions: Keratocystic odontogenic tumors have higher recurrence rates than other odontogenic lesions; thus, the selected type of treatment is very important.
