Mandibular first premolar is often considered as enigma to endodontist. Though most frequent type of tooth configuration reported is the presence of one root and root canal. This case report enlightens the prime aspects of diagnosis and endodontic management of an aberrant configuration with respect to mandibular first premolar. A variation in number of roots as well as canal morphology is not scarce. According to various studies on anatomic configuration 1.8% of mandibular first premolar showed two roots. Root canal morphology can be unpredictable and requires cautious assessment for root canal therapy.
