Management of radicular CYST with extraoral sinus tract involving lower central incisors: A case report


Revathy M Nair, Jayasree S, Nishana K, Rinku B

Radicular cyst is the most common odontogenic cyst of inflammatory origin affecting the jaws. It is most commonly found at the apices of involved teeth; however, it may also be found on the lateral aspects of teeth in relation to lateral canals. It may be associated with intraoral or extraoral sinus tract. Extraoral sinus tracts are more common in children and adolescents because the teeth are not yet fully erupted and the alveolar process is not fully developed and so roots are more deeply seated. Management of the radicular or periapical cyst with sinus opening can be either surgical or non-surgical. Present case report discusses about the management of radicular cyst with extraoral sinus tract by endodontic treatment of the involved teeth followed by surgical management with cyst enucleation and apicoectomy.
