nonvital tooth which have necrotizing pulp as it is an inflammatory cyst. Radicular cyst usually occurs in
the periapical region of tooth. As a true cyst it consists of pathologic cavity which is lined by epithelium
and commonly filled with fluid. Treatment option for the radicular cyst depends on the size, location and
duration of the lesion which includes endodontic treatment, enucleation of the lesion, extraction of the
offending tooth and marsupialization. In this case report, we are describing a case of infected radicular cyst
