Radicular cyst mimicking dentigerous cyst in a child: CBCT t
The present case paper, published in the International Journal of Clinical Pediatric Dentistry, describes rare case of large radicular cyst-associated deciduous tooth and discusses the importance of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) in diagnosing the condition.

Radicular cyst is the most common cyst affecting the permanent teeth, but its occurrence in deciduous teeth is rare. Most of the radicular cysts are asymptomatic and are discovered accidentally when radiographs are taken.

Conventional radiographs show two-dimensional images of three-dimensional objects. Cone beam computed tomography provides undistorted three-dimensional information of hard tissues and gives adequate spatial resolution.

A 7-year-old child, with a complaint of swelling in the maxillary anterior region, was diagnosed with radicular cyst in relation to primary maxillary right central incisor based on CBCT and histopathological features.
