Foreign bodies are relatively uncommon on a dental panoramic radiograph. A variety of foreign bodies can produce radiopacities on dental radiograph. Herein, we report a rare case of long-standing incidental radiopaque materials that presented in the skull on a panoramic radiograph of a 60-year-old patient. The medical history of the patient revealed that she had undergone myelography with an iodinated oil-based contrast medium 18 years ago for diagnosis of spinal disease.
