Transmigration of impacted canine is an uncommon phenomenon in which unerupted canine crosses the midline. Sometimes, this condition may also be associated with any pathology or cystic degeneration, and in such a case surgical extraction along with the enucleation of cyst is the preferred treatment modality. The present study discusses a case of a 12-year-old adolescent male with similar condition managed with surgical removal of tooth and cyst enucleation.
