An unusual eruption sequestrum. The so-called eruption sequestrum. Ann Acad Med Sequeztrum ; The histological analysis was consistent with non-vital bone and the diagnosis of eruption sequestrum was established.

Although ES has been reported as a sequestfum consisting of compact, non-viable bone 1,2,5Watkins 3 described a sequetsrum composed of dentin and covered in areas by fragments of bacteria-infected cementum. Although previously thought to have little clinical significance 1ES may retain biofilm accumulation and lead to pericoronitis, localized swelling, discomfort during mastication, and demineralization or dental caries if it remains for a prolonged time 2.

Apoptosis of the reduced enamel epithelium and its implications for bone resorption during tooth eruption. ES is usually observed at the time of eruption of the mandibular first molars, but it has been noted occurring with maxillary first molars and mandibular second molars 1,2. Osteolysis Hajdu-Cheney syndrome Ainhum. Within the bone itself, the haversian canals eruptiom blocked with sequesttum tissue, and the bone becomes surrounded by thickened periosteum.

ES is an uncommon clinical finding. Due to the avascular nature of this bone, antibiotics which travel to sites of infection via the bloodstream poorly penetrate these tissues, hence the difficulty in treating chronic osteomyelitis. If seen radiographically before tooth eruption, its intraoral appearance may be predicted 1.
