Stafne bone cysts (SBC) are asymptomatic bony depressions present on the lingual aspect of mandible caused by soft tissue involvement. As SBC’s are asymptomatic radiolucent lesion on the mandible, they are incidentally seen during a routine radiographic examination. Diagnosis of such lesions is essential due to its radiographical similarities with that of other odontogenic pathologies. We present a case of SBC which was firstly diagnosed with plain radiograph.
