In the present case the parents of a 20-day old boy reported with swelling in the mandibular anterior region, associated with abscess which was subsequently drained and later on a neonatal tooth erupted in this region which was extracted. Natal and neonatal teeth although rare may be seen associated with pathologies; the management of which should be done after careful observation and examination. This paper represents a case report and the importance of knowledge among pediatric dentists related to natal/neonatal teeth.
