There are various inflammatory lesions seen in the oral cavity of children. Radicular cysts are odontogenic in origin and rare in the primary dentition, representing only 0.5 to 3.3% of the total number of radicular cysts in both the primary and permanent dentition. Treatment options for these cystic lesions include: endodontic therapy, extraction of the involved tooth, cyst enucleation or marsupialization. This case report describes surgical management of radicular cyst associated with an infected primary molar and a review of the literature.

Keywords :
