History of the present illness

This is a 62-year-old white male referred by his general dentist for a deeply impacted tooth # 32 associated with a large unilocular radiolucency.  This lesion was discovered on routine dental examination.  There was no evidence of a swelling and the patient denied any pain or parasthesia.
