Abstract:   (65 Views)
A 29-year-old female patient was referred to the Department of Oral And Maxillofacial Surgery in Taleghani Hospital of Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Science, Tehran, Iran, in 2019, complaining of increased volume and pain in the posterior mandibular region. Cone-beam computed tomography and multislice computed tomography were performed, and an incisional biopsy was done. The histopathologic examination confirmed the diagnosis of Odontogenic Keratocyst (OKC). Surgical treatment was performed with marsupialization. After a year of follow-up, the resultant small-sized cyst was curetted, and Leukocyte-Platelet‑Rich Fibrin (LPRF) was placed in the bony depression. The significant healing of the lesion was noted on regular follow-up visits with complete resolution at 15 months. This report showed that the application of LPRF might accelerate the healing of soft tissues and bone regeneration with no inhibitory effect on the natural healing process.
