The most common of the odontogenic tumours of the jaws are odontomas. Occasionally, a dentigerous cyst might develop from epithelial lining of fibrous capsule of a odontoma. We present a case of a 10-year-old boy suffering from apparent ectopic partial eruption of mandibular right first premolar associated with an impacted compound odontome related with a dentigerous cyst.
