Periodontal Cyst: a Case Report and Literature Review.
Case report of a periodontal cyst. Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol.
INTRODUCTION: When teeth harbor accessory root canal that are oriented from the pulp chamber to the lateral aspect of root or when an infected root fracture is present, spread of inflammation can progress laterally and occur as midway up the root resulting in laterally displaced apical periodontal cyst. Pain may be a feature of such a lesion.
Lesions include lateral periodontal cyst, collateral KCOT, CGCG, fibro osseous lesions, ameloblastoma, osteomas, etc.
The extrafollicular type usually presents as a unilocular, well-defined radiolucency found between, above or superimposed on the roots of erupted teeth and often resembling a residual, radicular, globulomaxillary or lateral periodontal cyst. The peripheral type usually presents as a gingival swelling, located palatally or lingually relative to the involved tooth.
Because of the clinical and morphologic similarities of this cyst and lateral periodontal cyst, Wysocki et al.
HISTORY: The term "lateral periodontal cyst" was used to describe any cyst that developed along the lateral root surface, including lateral radicular cysts and odontogenic cysts.
OKCs are usually discovered during the course of a routine radiographic examination and demonstrate a well-defined unilocular or multilocular radiolucency with smooth and often corticated margins which may simulate that of odentigerous, radicular, residual or a lateral periodontal cyst. Root resorption is seldom a feature.9 Cawson et al in 2004 have considered OKCs as keratinizing cysts and have divided it into para-keratinised and orthokeratinised linings.
A very small number of cases of calcifying odontogenic (0.7%) and glandular odontogenic (0.4%) cyst were also reported and not even a single case in this entire span was diagnosed as of eruption cyst, gingival cyst, lateral periodontal cyst or of buccal bifurcation cyst.
They demonstrate a well defined unilocular or multilocular radiolucency with smooth and often corticated margins which may simulate that of a den-tigerous, radicular, residual or a lateral periodontal cyst. Root resorption is seldom a feature.
Based on these findings a provisional diagnosis of Lateral periodontal cyst was made and under differential diagnosis Central giant cell granuloma, central ossifying fibroma, and radicular cyst were considered.
