To determine the demographic profile of odontogenic cysts (OC) and nonodontogenic cysts (nOC) which were all histologically diagnosed over a 6-year period in the uttarpradesh population. Records of patients with OC and nOC in uttar predesh population, during the period of 2005 to 2013 were evaluated. Among 1900 oral biopsies, 290 (15.2%) presented criteria of OC and nOC. Of these, 281 specimens (14.7%) were diagnosed as OC and 9 (0.47%) represented nOC. The 3 most frequent OC diagnosed were radicular cyst (62.0%), dentigerous cyst (25.%), and odontogenic keratocyst (10.8%). The most frequent nOC was the nasopalatine duct cyst (2.2%). Our results concluded that there is a wide range of OC and nOC. Some cysts showed predilection for age, gender, and localization. We also showed demographic aspects and clinical characteristics of these cysts. These could be used as baseline data to obtain more epidemiologic information about the OC and the nOC especially in the uttarpradesh population.
