Abstract

A slowly growing lesion of the rostral mandible of a goat was diagnosed to be a septic dentigerous cyst. The lesion was treated surgically to remove one displaced tooth and debride the cystic cavity, and systemic antibiotic therapy was applied. Thirty-four weeks later the goat was clinically and radiographically improved and the problem had not recurred.
