Subject: [roots] External Resorption-not all the same

Hereís a case I strongly suspected as being arrested ECIR, 
but after seeing the CBCT I think itís simple form of 
inflammatory external resorption replacing the root in a 
localized arrested crater.  It hasní't changed in 5 years 
(2005 radiograph provided by gp).  It doesnít look like ECIR.  
The pulp is necrotic, probings do not bleed, no perio 
communication. After taking the CBCT I upgraded the assessed 
prognosis from guarded at best to guarded-to-fair.

Attached are some key captured CBCT images.

The patient is scheduled for endo.     - Terry.
