We report an ectopically impacted tooth at the mandibular notch accompanied by inflammatory resorption of the tooth and peripheral inflammation. A 73-year-old woman presented with a swelling in the right preauricular region, as well as trismus. Radiographic examination showed an impacted tooth in the mandibular notch with pericoronal resorption of the bone. The tooth, which had a defect in the cervical and crown region, was extracted under general anesthesia. A histological study revealed that the defect was not due to caries, but inflammatory resorption.
