Diagnosis

  • Differential Dx

    • Draining sinus tract

    • Salivary gland fistula

    • Endo Abscess

    • Perio Abscess

  • Provisional Dx

    • Draining sinus tract (confirmed by placing a piece of gutta percha in the lesion and taking a radiograph)

    • The lesion is treated by removing the cause of the infection; which in this case is the remaining root tip of #11.
