Knowledge of the external and internal dental anatomy and its variations is a prime factor of success of endodontic therapy. The maxillary central incisor usually presents with one root canal system within one root. This report portrays an endodontic re-treatment of a maxillary central incisor of a healthy 38-year-old Saudi female patient with two canal systems and two roots presented to the clinic complaining of swelling and pus drainage. The case was initially misdiagnosed and not treated fully, however, correct diagnosis through detailed examination and evaluation, using tracing and imaging. Retreatment was done and the tooth was asymptomatic clinically and radiographically at 6 months follow-up.
