Stafne's bone cyst is an uncommon lesion of the mandible. It manifests itself as an asymptomatic bone cavity and is usually seen as an incidental finding in the mandibular angle regions, lingual aspect. Rarely is this radiolucency located in the anterior mandible, where it can cause a diagnostic dilemma. A case is reported wherein this bone cyst was found anteriorly in a panoramic radiograph during a routine dental examination.
