AUTHOR(S): Harshitha KR, Varsha VK, Deepa. C
ABSTRACT:Radicular cysts are common odontogenic cyst. It involves the apex of carious tooth. It is a true cyst, since the lesion consists of pathologic cavity lined by epithelium and is often fluid filled. Radicular cyst which remains after or develops subsequent to extraction is termed residual cyst. Cyst can be managed surgically and or non-surgically. Choice of treatment depends on site and size of cyst. The present case, a characteristic radicular cyst, was successfully managed with root canal therapy (RCT) along with surgical enucleation.
