This has still to be resolved, but there is the possibility that in view of the OKC’s reputation for aggressive behaviour, workers in the field may have been more likely to report malignant changes in OKCs than in other jaw cysts. Some DNA, viral and other laboratory studies attempted to address the question. Using techniques that allowed flow cytometry to be performed on tissue stored in paraffin wax, High et al. (1987) examined the DNA content of cells from an OKC that underwent epithelial dysplasia and malignant transformation.

(2004) suggested an interesting technique to distinguish OKCs from solitary bone cysts (SBC) of the mandible by identifying their contour and pixel grey levels in digitised panoramic radiographs of 32 SBCs and 20 OKCs.
