Eruption cyst in the neonate: a case report
The pediatric dental approach to the oral cavity of newborns requires special attention, as many aspects are unique and peculiar to this period of life.

It is important that pediatricians and pediatric dentists be aware of the characteristics within normal newborn patterns and prepared to make a correct diagnosis of abnormalities at early stages. Congenital eruption cysts (ECs) are rarely observed in newborns, as at this stage of a child’s life, tooth eruption is unusual.

This study, published in the Int J Clin Pediatr Dent, reports a case of EC treated successfully by monitoring of the lesion, without any surgical procedure. In the 4th month, the lesion had completely regressed, and the deciduous central incisors had erupted without problems.

The clinical and radiographic monitoring of ECs in newborns seems to be a satisfactory management procedure, similar to what is recommended for older children.
