Abstract:   (1310 Views)

Dentigerous cyst is a benign developmental
lesion of the jaw. It is most commonly occurs
during the second and third decades of life and
has rarely been reported in association with a
deciduous tooth. We report a case of two-year
old girl who presented with an unerupted central
incisor. According to the radiographic findings,
she was diagnosed with a dentigerous cyst
and underwent surgical enucleation. The final
diagnosis was confirmed by histopathological
analysis. We briefly discussed the characteristics
of similar cases.
