The records of the Division of Stomatology, Institute for Medical Research, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, were reviewed for the incidence of odontogenic keratocysts of the orthokeratinised variety, during the 20-year-period, 1967 to 1986. Nine cases were found. The clinical, histological and radiological features of these cases are reported. Many features were similar to previous reports of this entity but a peak incidence in the second decade of life, an almost even distribution in the maxilla and mandible, and a distinct predilection for the Chinese were observed. It is suggested that these features may be peculiar to Malaysians.
