Multiple idiopathic cervical resorption: A diagnostic dilemma
Arora, Ankit / Acharya, Shashi Rashmi / Muliya, Vidya Saraswathi / Sharma, Padmaja
Multiple idiopathic cervical resorption is an uncommon condition, the etiology of which remains unknown. The case of a 36-year-old woman with idiopathic resorption in the cervical areas of multiple teeth is presented. Her medical history was noncontributory, but her dental history was valuable in reaching a diagnosis. Hematologic and endocrinal investigations were unremarkable, but a computed tomography scan revealed relevant information. The progression of the lesion and involvement of multiple teeth without any pattern or chronology are challenges faced when diagnosing and treating this condition.
