Odontogenic keratocysts (OKCs) are epithelial developmental cysts which were first described by Phillipsen in 1956. Lesions are frequently multiple and a component of Nevoid Basal Cell Carcinoma Syndrome (NBCCS) (Gorlin Goltz syndrome/Bifid rib syndrome). We hereby report a case of multiple OKCs in a non – syndromic patient and highlight the general practitioner the importance of diagnosing the disease and enforcing a strict long-term follow-up whenever such a case is identified.
