Lateral periodontal cysts are an uncommon type of developmental odontogenic cysts that typically occur along the lateral aspect of teeth, usually involving mandibular lateral incisors and canines. They are known to commonly originate from the cell rests of Serre and represent the intrabony counterpart of gingival cysts of adults. In majority of cases with no apparent signs and symptoms, they are revealed on routine radiographic examinations; however, definitive diagnosis is made only by histopathological examination. The purpose of this article is to report an unusual case of lateral periodontal cyst located in the anterior region of mandible and to discuss the clinical, radiological, and histopathological features of the cyst.
