WALTERS, J; NORTJE, CJ  e  SHAIK, S.. Radicular cyst associated with a primary molar in the maxilla: Case report. S. Afr. dent. j. [online]. 2018, vol.73, n.4, pp.257-258. ISSN 0375-1562.

Radicular cysts in the primary dentition are reported to be very rare, especially in the maxilla. Asymptomatic lesions often go unnoticed, becoming very large in paediatric patients. They are regularly misdiagnosed due to the tendency for the cyst to envelop the permanent successors. The following case reports on a 10-year-old boy who presented with a very large radicular cyst in the maxilla arising from a primary molar. The lesion encompassed several permanent successors, extended to the infra-orbital rim, and expanded into the maxillary sinus, resulting in nasal septal deviation. Treatment included enucleation with histopathological confirmation of a radicular cyst. Healing was uneventful.

Palavras-chave : Radicular cyst; primary dentition; molar; maxilla; pantomography; computed tomography; enucleation.
