A case report of the management of recurrent sinus tract associated with lateral canal is presented. In this report, a patient reported with a recurrent sinus tract after primary endodontic therapy. The sinus tract was traced with a gutta-percha point, which suggested the point of origin at the middle third of the root. An exploratory surgery revealed a lateral canal with extruded sealer. The canal was retroprepared and sealed with mineral trioxide aggregate. The sinus tract healed uneventfully. Postoperative healing of 18 months is presented. This case report demarcates the importance of lateral canals in endodontic pathosis.
