Clinical and radiological features of odontogenic cysts lined by an epithelium with plaque-like thickenings [1,2,7,20].

  Clinical features Radiological features
Lateral Periodontal    
Cyst (LPC) Predilection for mandibular canine/premolar area, usually localized between the roots of 2 vital teeth that may be displaced Well-defined unilocular radiolucency usually less than 10 mm (Fig 9A)
Botryoid odontogenic cyst (BOC) Multicystic variant of LPC Usually confluent multilocular radiolucency (Figs 9B, Figs 9C)
Gingival cyst of adults (GC) Peripheral counterpart of LPC  
Predilection for mandibular gingiva of canine/premolar area. It appears like an asymptomatic, well-defined and usually bluish nodule on the attached gingiva. (Fig 9D) This cyst is purely peripheral and is not associated with any radiographic involvement  
Glandular odontogenic cyst (GOC) Rare cyst (<0,5%), slight predilection for anterior mandibular area. Usually asymptomatic slow-growing swelling. Radiological features are not specifics, and this cyst may appear initially like an unilocular radiolucency that becomes locally aggressive with multilocular features and often tooth displacement, root resorption or cortical perforation. It may cross the jaw midline. (Figs 9E, Figs 9F)
