A 20 year old baker had been suffering with an arthritic knee that did not respond to any kind of medical treatment. It was assumed that his (very premature) arthritis had been caused by "excessive" football playing. The patient also had an inexplicable difficulty breathing through his left nostril.

Clinical inspection by dentist Dr. Adler revealed a set of 32 caries-free teeth. The upper left small incisor showed diminished permeability to light, however, indicating that the tooth could be nonvital. The subsequent x-ray examination brought to light a cyst of gigantic proportions in the patient's jaw which spanned a total of four teeth including the nonvital one.

The dentist proceeded to perform a cystectomy according to Partsch II.[3]

Both the baker's arthritis and breathing difficulties vanished, showing they had been caused by "pressure" exerted by the cyst. This case was observed for 26 years, showing no relapse.

3 German oral and maxillofacial surgeon Carl Partsch (1855-1932) is considered the "father" of oral surgery. Among other techniques, he described two different types of cyst surgery, Partsch I and Partsch II, the latter involving removal of the cyst as a whole.
