Abstract

Radicular cysts originating from primary teeth are considered rare. The study analyzed 49 primary molars with radiolucent lesions ranging from 4–15 mm in diameter. 73.5% of the lesions were diagnosed as radicular cysts, and 26.5% as granulomas. The lesions were more frequent in the mandible. All lesions were associated with severely decayed teeth and only 4 had previous pulp therapy. The present study and the survey of the literature suggest that radicular cysts associated with primary teeth are not rare.
