GONCALVES, Rhoner et al. Botryoid odontogenic cyst: case report with etiopathogenic, diagnostic and therapeutic considerations. RGO, Rev. Gaúch. Odontol. [online]. 2015, vol.63, n.3, pp.343-346. ISSN 1981-8637.

The botryoid odontogenic cyst is a rare asymptomatic lesion characterized by its typical multilocular aspect similar to a bunch of grapes commonly affecting the mandible bicuspids and canine region. The possibility of this lesion representing a clinical variation of the lateral periodontal cyst is source of discussion and doubt among many authors. Our article reports a rare case of the polemic odontogenic cyst and presents considerations related to its etiopathogenic, diagnostic and therapeutic aspects.
