Abstract

Radicular cysts arising from deciduous teeth are rare. This report presentsa case of radicular cyst associated with a primary molar following pulptherapy and discusses the relationship between pulp therapy and the rapidgrowth of the cyst. The treatment consisted of enucleation of the cyst sacand extraction of the involved primary teeth and 20 months follow up ofthe patient. Early diagnosis of the lesion would have lead to a less aggressivetreatment plan.
