      Follicular dental cysts are caused by enamel epithelium around the crown of the tooth. We treated a case of follicular dental cyst, with purulent inflammation causing maxillodental gingival fistula.
     Radiograph and CT imaging showed a partial bone deficit in the left maxilla, and the impacted tooth located in the membranate area was considered to be a maxillodental wisdom tooth.
     The cyst was enucleated by surgery, and the post operative course has been good.

Key words : follicular dental cyst, gingival fistula, impacted tooth, wisdom tooth
