Radicular cyst involving anterior region of mandible - A case report
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Debanjali Mukherjee
ABSTRACT:Inﬂammatory jaw cysts arise as a result of epithelial proliferation within an inﬂammatory focus due to a number of causes (physical, chemical or bacterial injury). Radicular cysts are the most common inﬂammatory cysts and they arise from the epithelial residues in the periodontal ligament after death and necrosis of the pulp as a result of periapical periodontitis. Radicular cysts (also known as periapical cyst) are found most commonly at the apices of the involved teeth. Most common site of occurrence is anterior maxillary region along with male sex predilection. This report describes a case on a radicular cyst involving anterior mandibular region extending to the body of the mandible occurring in a 30 years old male patient.
