Radicular Cyst Associated With an Endodontically Treated Deciduous Molar: A Case Report with Emphasis for Regular Follow Up

Suchitra Pralhad Patil, Bhagirathi D Lakkam, Kango Prasad Gopal


This article presents a case report of a patient with a periapical cyst associated with an endodontically treated primary mandibular molar. It may be implicated that the intracanal medicaments used for pulp therapy may be the probable etiologic factor for the occurrence of these cysts as has been enumerated in the literature. This does not implicate that intracanal medicaments should not be used, but it is prudent to imply that pulpotomy treated primary molars should receive periodic postoperative radiographic examination and absence of clinical symptoms does not mean that a pulpotomy treated tooth is healthy emphasizing the role of regular follow up of such treated cases.
