Buccal bifurcation cyst-mimicking a periodontal abscess
Author(s): Shalini Kapoor
Buccal Bifurcation Cyst (BBC) is a rare inflammatory odontogenic cyst that typically occurs at the buccal region of the first or second mandibular molars in younger patients. We report a rare case, of buccal bifurcation cyst mimicking a periodontal abscess in a 13-year-old female who complained of pus discharge from the right mandibular first molar region and was irresponsive to periodontal therapy. Treatment was done by simple enucleation without extraction of teeth. The patient has been under follow-up for about 2 years showing the normal bone repair. Although the BBC is uncommon, it is important for clinicians to recognize this entity, which will aid in early diagnosis and proper patient management.
