A clear understanding of the root morphology and canal anatomy is an essential prerequisite to achieve clean, disinfected and 3-dimensionally obturated root canal systems. Undetected extra roots or root canals can directly affect the outcome of endodontic therapy. The purpose of this article was to present a clinical case of a maxillary first molar with two palatal canals in a single palatal root. This report serves in reminding clinicians that such anatomical variations should be taken into account during the endodontic treatment of the maxillary molars.
