Dentigerous cyst is the most commonly occurring developmental odontogenic cyst. Because of the typical clinical and radiologic attributes, the present case was clinically misdiagnosed as Dentigerous cyst which was later confirmed histopathologically as Lateral periodontal cyst. Lateral periodontal Cyst is defined as non-keratinized developmental cyst located lateral to the root of a vital tooth. This case report presents a unique case of lateral periodontal cyst present in 58-year-old female patient. Atypical presentation of lateral periodontal cyst as is presented in this case report should be considered by the histopathologist while interpreting microscopic preparations of odontogenic cysts.

Abstract


Dentigerous cyst is the most commonly occurring developmental odontogenic cyst. Because of the typical clinical and radiologic attributes, the present case was clinically misdiagnosed as Dentigerous cyst which was later confirmed histopathologically as Lateral periodontal cyst. Lateral periodontal Cyst is defined as non-keratinized developmental cyst located lateral to the root of a vital tooth. This case report presents a unique case of lateral periodontal cyst present in 58-year-old female patient. Atypical presentation of lateral periodontal cyst as is presented in this case report should be considered by the histopathologist while interpreting microscopic preparations of odontogenic cysts.
