The histopathologic examination of the lesions confirmed the diagnostic hypothesis of a dentigerous
cyst with inflammatory origin.
In addition to the teeth in the premaxillae, maxillae and mandibles, dentigerous
areas are seen in the ectopterygoid and accessory ectopterygoid bones (Figure ID and IE) and in the pharynx (Figure IF).

The aetiology of ectopic unerupted mandibular third molars remains unclear but the majority present with associated dentigerous

diploproa collected during the same survey by the presence of supraocular and nuchal spines and the absence of prominent dentigerous

Thus differential diagnosis from other types of cysts such as dentigerous
, residual and radicular cysts must be made.
