Radicular cyst is one of the most common odontogenic cyst found in the jaws. It is inflammatory in nature and found mostly in the nonvital tooth. It usually presents at a later stage in life because the formation of the cyst is the last step in the progression of inflammatory events after a periapical infection. This present case was with swelling, and the cyst was removed surgically under local anesthesia. Based on histopathological findings, it was diagnosed as a radicular cyst.
