Reaction of the Pulp Tissue: Co-occurrence of Pulp Stone and Internal Resorption

Elaine Vianna Freitas FACHIN, Alexandre Azevedo SALLES, Gustavo Freitas FACHIN


Internal resorption is a rare finding in permanent traumatized teeth. The etiology of internal resorption is unknown, but trauma or inflammation have been suggested as probable causes. In the present report, we describe a case of internal inflammatory resorption associated with a pulp stone in the lower right first molar of a 25-year old female. The patient was unable to recall any instances of trauma that could explain the occurrence of these phenomena. She was successfully treated with conservative endodontic treatment. Differential diagnosis ruled out the possibility of invasive cervical resorption.
