BACKGROUND: The recommendations regarding the management of keratocystic odontogenic tumour (KCOT) vary widely
in the literature. The authors highlight that conservative surgical management should still be considered in some cases. CASE
REPORT: A young patient with Gorlin-Goltz Syndrome and two large mandibular KCOTs is presented. The case demonstrates
conservative treatment with enucleation of the tumours and preservation of all involved teeth. Subsequent orthodontic treatment
resulted in all teeth erupting successfully. The tumour cavities regenerated with bone.
