Started this case about 2 month ago.
raging sinus tract and slight swelling at consult appt.
EPT, Cold, Heat all negative response. Traced the ST to
the lower premolar.
3-4 weeks later the ST was completely resolved after initial
C&S and dressing with Ca(OH)2. obturated a month later.
not sure about termination of the apical extent. did I make my made my
own canal? or is this where the POE is?
I will see him shortly for a recall... will post a follow up. - ahmad

Ahmad, Was this a dens evaginatus case? If so, had the tubercle been
removed or did it fracture off? What does the contralateral look like?
My trusty consultant, Dr. Photoshop, indicates that there was
a bifurcation of the canal at the level indicated by your seals.
I talked to Watson the other day to get a referral with a neurologist
familiar with Ramsey-Hunt syndrome. It's a small world.
He suggested the brother of one of my former dental students.
As you may know, this form of Bell's Palsy is characterized by a
reactivation of Herpes zoster virus in the facial nerve, causing pain
in and around the ear. He said he would enjoy a visit. - Grant
Good morning Grant:
Yes it was Dens Evaginitis. There was a pin point carious lesion within
the fold to contaminate the pulp. The tubercle seemed intact, even though
it looked like it had been removed before. The contra lateral tooth
seemed normal and responded WNL to sensitivity tests.
I had never heard of R-H syndrome, it gave me something else to learn.
Thanks! Grant you have been a positive influence on many students through
out your illustrious career. You know so many people, and the degree of
separation is much smaller for you .
Thanks for looking at this case. I am planning to recall this patient
for a long time too. I have a very interesting D.E. case going on 5 years
......had huge apical radiolucency with an open apex.
I need to ask her to come in for a recall and post the case again. - Ahmad
Bizarre tooth, Ahmad. I think you did a great job and don't think you
made your own POE. - Mark
