Figure 3: (a) Clinical and (b) radiographic situations 30 months after the implant placement (November 2007). Pulsation was detected on the palate, but there was no mobility of the implant. Oval radiolucency is found around the apical portion of the implant, (c) Computed tomography image 30 months after the implant placement (November 2007). A cyst-like radiolucency of the size of a crown (10 mm × 10 mm × 9 mm) was found surrounding the apical portion of the implant and continuous with the incisor canal, (d) Cyst removal and resection of the apical portion of the implant (November 2007). The arrow indicates the neurovascular bundle, (e) Histopathological analysis on the biopsy samples (November 2006). The cyst wall consisted of fibrous connective tissue lined by pseudostratified ciliated cuboidal epithelium. No large diameter blood vessels or nerve-fiber bundles were found in the specimen. (H&E stain, ×100)
