Odontogenic keratocysts (OKCs) have an incidence of 5.4 to 17% of all odontogenic cysts. These OKCs are more common in the mandible, with cysts in the maxilla having incidence of 31.3% only. In the maxilla, they most commonly occur in the canine region. The rarity of this case presentation is in the fact that only 1% of maxillary OKCs will show involvement of maxillary sinus, which was seen in both our patients. Historically, OKCs have been treated by open approaches like Caldwell Luc. We present two of our cases that were treated by endoscopic endonasal approach with review of literature.

Keywords: Endoscopic, Excision, Keratocystic odontogenic tumor.
