Now the lesion is renamed as Keratocystic odontogenic tumour (KCOT) because of its neoplastic nature and its tendency to recur. KCOT occurs most commonly in the mandibular ramus area. Maxillary anterior region is a rare site of occurrence. We present a rare case of maxillary KCOT with its clinical features, radiographic and histopathological and surgical management.

Cardiac tamponade is one of the cardiac emergencies which necessitates an urgent diagnosis and treatment to restore haemodynamics. Causes of tamponade may vary in etiology however almost all of them have a common clinical presentation. Spontaneous hemopericardium leading to cardiac tamponade is an unusual manifestation of thrombocytopenia and to the best of our knowledge ,there is no case of thrombocytopenic tamponade mentioned in the literature.
