Introduction: Internal root resorption is a chronic inflammatory process initiated within the pulp space with the loss of dentin. The clastic cells present in the pulp tissue trigger a progressive resorption phenomenon. Case report and conclusion: This paper reports a clinical case of an internal root resorption in the permanent central incisor, at the middle third of the root canal. Because it is asymptomatic,internal root resorption needs an early diagnosis in order to institute the endodontic treatment before the process compromises the mineralized structures of the tooth.
