Abstract
Introduction: Hemorrhagic bone cyst is a non-epithelial cyst and an uncommon lesion of the jaw bones which is usually diagnosed in the early decades of life. It is usually diagnosed accidentally during routine dental examination because of its asymptomatic nature. On radiographic examination it looks like a well-defined radiolucent lesion located more commonly in the posterior mandible.
Case Report: We report an unusual case of hemorrhagic cyst which was diagnosed when the patient came for a regular dental visit to get fillings done for a carious tooth.
Conclusion: Diagnosing hemorrhagic bone cyst is a challenge, as it is asymptomatic most of the times and may be mistaken for tumors of the jaws when noticed radiographically. Thorough surgical enucleation stands as best treatment option.

Keywords: Curettage, Enucleation, Hemorrhagic bone cyst, Solitary bone cyst
