Radicular cysts associated with the deciduous dentition are rare. The literature is sparse regarding cysts associated with primary incisor teeth, which is surprising given the frequency with which these teeth are traumatized. Most cases reported involve molar teeth associated with apical infection following on from caries. A case of a 3-year-old boy who developed a large radicular cyst associated with a previously traumatized upper primary incisor is reported.
