PMID:  7838479     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Multiple idiopathic external apical root resorption is an unusual phenomenon. A brief review of cases in the literature is presented as well as a report of a patient with severe resorption. No significant systemic, dental, or familial findings could be identified as a possible cause. Careful chronologic radiographic documentation showed that roots with normal length began to resorb several years earlier, and the resorption continued over a defined period of time, terminating spontaneously before tooth loss or obvious pulp damage. Because the pathogenesis is generally unknown, no specific treatment modalities exist at present.
