Jaw cysts are the most abundant and the most varied in comparison to those affecting any other part of the human body. Periodical cysts are the most common cysts of the jaw . The peak incidence of root cysts is observed in the 4th and 5th decade of life, with a slight predilection for males.

There are several ways to diagnose a periapical cyst: Conventional X-ray, cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), ultrasonography (USG), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

The therapeutic approach can be conservative (Decompression, apexum procedure), or surgical (Enucleation, marsupialization) with or without filling. The pathological examination allows a confrontation with the clinical and radiological data in order to establish a precise and definitive diagnosis.
