Radicular cyst of anterior Maxilla

Dexter Brave, Madhusudan A.S, Gayathri Ramesh, Brave V.R


The radicular cyst has been classified as inflammatory cyst, as a consequence to pulpal necrosis following caries, with an associated periapical inflammatory response. Many times it is difficult to differentiate radicular cysts from the obligatory pre-existing chronic periapical periodontitis lesions radiographically.  This paper presents a case of radicular cyst in the maxillary anterior region.
