Title:  Conservative management of multiple keratocystic odontogenic tumours in a child with Gorlin-Goltz syndrome: a case report

Abstract:  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.
