The aim of this study is to report a case of dentigerous cyst combined with a periapical cyst in anatomic continuity. The patient was a 46-year-old black male. During an extraoral exam, moderate swelling was observed on the hard palate in the region between the vital 22 and pre-molar’s residual root. CT scan examination showed the same coloration of the surrounding tissue. The CT scan showed that the 13 was impacted, with a lesion suggestive of an adenomatoid odontogenic tumor or compound odontoma. An excisional biopsy was performed. The histopathological exam revealed two contiguous lesions: a dentigerous cyst from the tooth 13 and a periapical cyst from the root residuals of 24 and 25. The clinical and radiographic diagnoses were not enough to arrive at a correct diagnosis, although these findings. The histopathological examination showed two distinct lesions, which contributed to the correct diagnosis and treatment.
