Dentigerous cyst is the most commonly found among odontogenic cysts. Regarding its origin, it may be developmental or inflammatory. The inflammatory dentigerous cyst occurs only in mixed dentition patient and too with less frequency. The cyst is mostly seen as a unilocular radiolucency that encloses permanent teeth buds which can be displaced at times. Treatment of inflammatory dentigerous cyst in children is aimed to save as many developing permanent teeth as possible. This article presents a case of uncomplicated behavior of a huge mandibular dentigerous cyst in a 10-year-old boy after marsuplisation. Long-term follow-up examination showed complete bony healing and spontaneous eruption of permanent teeth even if they were badly dislocated.
