    Cytokeratin 19 Expression Patterns of Dentigerous Cysts and Odontogenic Keratocysts
    Author(s): Kamath KP* and Vidya M

    Background: Although numerous investigators have studied the pattern of keratin expression in different odontogenic cysts, the results have been variable. Aim: The present study was conducted to determine the pattern of expression of cytokeratin 19 (CK 19) in the epithelial lining of odontogenic keratocysts and dentigerous cysts. Materials and Methods: The epithelial layers showing expression of the epithelial marker CK 19 was determined by immunohistochemical methods in 15 tissue specimens each of histopathologically confirmed cases of dentigerous cysts and odontogenic keratocysts. Statistical analysis was done to compare the CK 19 expression between dentigerous cyst and odontogenic keratocyst using the Chi‑square test. P < 0.05 was considered to be statistically significant. Results: All specimens of dentigerous cysts were positive for CK 19 with 20% (3/15) of the specimens sho.. Read More»
