      This report is the first in a series from the Department of Oral Pathology, United States Army Institute of Dental Research, and is based on 2,308 cases.
      The present report deals only with the incidence and distribution of apical lesions. It has shown that an apical radiolucency may represent any one of nine distinct clinicopathologic lesions. The radicular cyst was found to comprise 42 per cent of all apical diseases. Other lesions seen in the apical area were dental granulomas, residual cysts, apical scars, cementomas, dental abscesses, foreign-body reactions, cholesteatomas, and giant-cell lesions.
