Radicular cyst is a most common type of odontogenic cyst that develops mostly as sequel of untreated dental caries. It is classified as inflammatory type originated mostly from cell rests of Malassez. Radicular cyst arising from deciduous teeth is rare, accounting for just 0.3% to 5% of the total number. Residual kind of radicular cyst in deciduous teeth are still very sparse in literature. Most of the residual cysts are asymptomatic and are found only on routine radiographic examination. We are presenting an interesting and rare case of symptomatic residual radicular cyst of left primary first molar extraction socket with secondary infection in a 5-year-old child. Our aim is to emphasize on investigations, recognition, and treatment of such inflammatory residual radicular lesions associated with deciduous teeth, which has been an unreported clinical entity.
