The benefits of sodium hypochlorite in endodontic therapy are such that its continued use is justified, but every effort should be made to avoid the introduction of this irrigant into the peri-apical tissues. Clinical picture of this avoidable mishap is being presented alongwith recommended treatment. Wedging of the irrigating needle into the canal must be avoided and a side delivery orifice needle is recommended. Also, before any endodontic treatment in which sodium hypochlorite is to be used, the patient should be asked about hypersensitivity to household bleaching powders.
