Residual cysts masquerading as periapical lesions: three case reports.


A residual cyst is an odontogenic lesion that survives after the removal of the associated tooth. The presence of this lesion adjacent to a remaining tooth may lead to incorrect, incomplete, or delayed treatment because it mimics a periapical lesion on the retained tooth. Three cases are reported that describe such conditions.
