A case report is given of a patient who came to the oral surgery office apparently in pain, but was referred by her general practitioner dentist for an evaluation of a root fragment. The periapical radiograph revealed a "filament" type opacity in the upper right canine area. It was explained to the patient, who opted for its removal. Although, the removed material appeared to be dental amalgam fragments, the patient insisted that it was a transmitter implanted by her gynecologist. The patient was referred for psychiatric therapy but only went for one visit. The tentative diagnosis was schizophrenia.
