Clinical and radiographic features provide significant clues for diagnosis of a traumatic bone cyst, which should be confirmed surgically to avoid unnecessary endodontic treatment or radical surgery due to a misdiagnosis. Management of the traumatic bone cyst is generally accomplished by the diagnostic process of surgical exploration. Reports of unusual clinical courses and an inadequate understanding of the etiology indicate that careful follow-up is essential.
