We are presenting a case of a 34-year-old female patient with a diagnosis of radicular cyst reported to Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department with a complaint of swelling in her face in relation to the right lower back tooth region for the past 1 month. Proved as a radicular cyst based on histopathology report after excision biopsy. In this case report, we focus on various diagnostic aspects of this cyst and its surgical management. The treatment of choice for this case was decompression followed by enucleation under local anesthesia. No recurrence was noted during the review.
