Of the most common odontogenic cysts, radicular cysts represent cystic lesions of inflammatory origin and are managed either by surgical enucleation or by marsupialization. This article aims to report a clinical case of radicular cyst of a huge proportion treated with a conservative management. An illustration of possible complete healing of such a cystic periapical lesion in mixed dentition with conservation of vital structures is covered.
