Radicular cysts are considered to be rare in the primary dentition comprising 0.5%-3.3% of the total number of radicular cysts in both primary and permanent dentition. Ectopic eruption is an eruption disturbance with the prevalence of 5.6% with majority being permanent central incisors. Etiology for eruption disturbance commonly includes odontoma, cysts, supernumerary teeth, and crown-root malformation. Ectopic eruption of permanent incisor due to radicular cyst associated with traumatized primary incisor is a very rare clinical entity that requires timely interception. The present case illustrates the clinical feature and multi-disciplinary management of ectopic eruption of permanent central incisor in a 9-year-old girl child.
