The unilocular radiolucencies remain the topic of much interest for clinicians for decades. These conditions cannot be diagnosed by clinical appearance alone, but it is based on clinical and radiological features. In spite of the giant strides taken in the field of imaging, there still remains the possibility that an inexperienced clinician may often misdiagnose this entity. It is thus very important for the clinician to have a sound knowledge of various unilocular radiolucencies. Adequate use of diagnostic aids and careful observation will certainly help to arrive at a proper diagnosis and render quality treatment in such cases. Here, we present a case of a rare unilocular lesion in the left anterior maxilla with three impacted teeth.
