Abstract: Pathological union is rare between permanent teeth. A case study of a male aged thirty, had pain and a swelling associated with two partly erupted permanent upper molars is described. An incision was made and the mucosa reflected. Removal of some bone disclosed that the second and third maxillary molars were in pathological union. These molars and a granulating mass attached to their roots were removed and the rather large cavity sutured.
