A RARE CASE REPORT ON DENTIGEROUS CYST

Dr K. Sahithi Srivalli, Dr R. Bhanu Murthy

Abstract


Dentigerous cyst (DC) is the second most common type of odontogenic cyst. It is thought to have a de­velopmental origin, arising from an anomaly in the reduced dental epithelium. Rarely seen in early child­hood, DC is mostly prevalent among people aged be­tween 20 and 40. The most common location of DC is the mandibular third molar, more rarely occurring in the maxillary sinus. Enucleation is the standard treat­ment. Herein, we report a 14-year-old boy with DC that developed into the right maxillary sinus, measuring 5.7×4.2 cm.
