Objective. The aim of this study was to perform an epidemiologic analysis of cases of jaw cysts treated from 1973 to 2012 at the Dentistry and Maxillofacial Surgery Unit of the Verona Hospital, Italy, and to compare the data obtained with those published in the literature.Study Design. A retrospective survey of 2030 patients treated for jaw cysts from 1973 to 2012 was performed. The lesions were classified according to the 2005 World Health Organization histologic classification, and the following variables were analyzed: age, gender, histopathologic diagnosis, and site of onset.Results. Of 2030 total lesions, there were 1970 odontogenic cysts (97.04%), 50 nonodontogenic cysts (2.46%), and 10 pseudocysts (0.49%). Of the patients, 314 were children (15.47%), and 1716 were adults (84.53%). Mean age was 37.24 years, with a male/ female ratio of 1.71:1.Conclusions. There is a wide variety of cysts, some of which are subject to variations according to gender, localization, and age.
