[Extract] Sir, we would like to share with your readers an unusual case of a patient with a double mandibular molar. A 26-year-old male patient presented to our department complaining of a missing tooth in the lower left posterior region. He gave a history of extraction of the tooth two years previously due to caries. Clinical examination revealed missing teeth 36 and 38 but tooth 37 demonstrated the anomalous morphology of a double tooth (Fig. 1), which radiographically (Fig. 2) revealed a large tooth with multiple roots, none of which were anomalous.
