A chance finding in a drop out case of apexification is reported. The incomplete root apex of the fractured tooth of a young boy was to be taken up for apexification. He was put on antibiotic cover and scheduled for procedure but did not turn up till six months latter. On radiological investigation at the end of the six months ‘root end’ was satisfactorily developed. Reactivation of mesenchymal cells in the periapical and pulpal tissue is discussed.
