Abstract:   (2984 Views)
Anterior stafne bone cyst is a rare and infrequent variant located between the lower incisor and the premolar area above the insertion of the mylohyoid muscle. Stafne bone cyst is a well-defined radiolucent cavity that is usually found as an incidental finding in the radiographic examination. In this article, a rare case of anterior stafne bone cyst is reported that resembled a radicular cyst, but Cone-Beam Computed Tomography images revealed a bone defect. Therefore, advanced images such as Cone-Beam Computed Tomography should be considered for better diagnosis and to prevent unnecessary treatment.
