Anatomical variations must be considered in clinical practice and proper radiographic evaluation must be done during endodontic treatment.

Access cavity modifications may be required for proper assessment of complex root canal anatomy. Higher magnification and illumination can be useful to recognize and locate additjonal canals. This article describes the diagnosis and clinical management of a rare case with type VII root canal anatomy in maxillary second premolar.
