Abstract

This case report describes a successful non-surgical endodontic retreatment of the lower right central incisor with periapical lesion with tender extra-oral cutaneous sinus at the mental region. The extra-oral cutaneous sinus was misdiagnosed as acne & was treated by a skin specialist. The tooth underwent root canal treatment in which Indian Propolis was used as an intracanal medicament. The tooth was obturated after 7 months after initiation of therapy. At 12 months recall intraoral periapical radiograph showed healing of the periapical lesion & the extra-oral cutaneous sinus was healed with scarring. A thorough clinical evaluation, proper diagnosis and multidisciplinary treatment protocol are important for the success of the treatment. This paper suggest that Indian Propolis was effective in the healing of periapical lesion with extra oral sinus.
