On dentigerous cysts article.

I read the interesting article on "A dentigerous cyst associated with bilaterally impacted mandibular canines in a girl: a case report." in Journal of Medical Case Reports 2011, 5:230 and only I like to comment the following:
1.- The photomicrograph of this manuscript does not show the microscopic features of a dentigerous cyst since no epithelial lining is shown. Accordinfg to the definition: A dentigerous cyst is a cavity lined with epithelium. For this reason, this case should not be considered as associated to a dentigerous cysts and should be marked as associated to a dental follicle only.
