Abstract A case is presented where six gutta percha (GP) points were introduced into the right maxillary antrum during routine endodontic treatment on an upper second premolar tooth in a poorly controlled insulin-dependent diabetic. The surgical management of the case is described and the possibly more serious sequelae are discussed. Comments are made on the appropriateness of the treatment plan.
