3D imaging of a right mandibular OKC in a 18-year-old female. (a) Before decompression protocol, the lesion spread from the swollen apex of the mandibular coronoid process to the centerline of the distal root of the first molar (major axis 55 mm).

(c) Enucleation did not harm the inferior alveolar nerve.
