      Objective. To determine the prevalence and associated factors of inflammatory root resorption (RRI) in primary molars in children of 3 to 10 years of age, who were attending at the Clínica Docente in Lima, Peru during the years 2011-2015. Methods. Clinical histories and periapical radiographs and bitewings of the primary molars were evaluated to determine the presence of inflammatory root resorption. Variables such age, gender and medical history of pulp treatments and previous restorations, carious lesions with or without pulp involvement and the presence of osteolytic process were also evaluated. All the data were analyzed using simple and multiple Poisson regression models and their confidence intervals were of 95% to calculate crude and adjusted prevalence ratios (RPa). Results. Were included 566 children and 1744 primary molars. The 52.9% were male; mean age 6.3 years (d.e. 0.9). The prevalence of RRI was 25.3%. Children with history of caries with pulp involvement [RPa:4.45; IC95%:3.44 a 5.75], pulp treatment [RPa:5.00;IC95%:3.79 a 6.61], the osteolytic process [RPa:3.04;IC95%:2.58 a 3.60] and age [RPa: 1.09; IC95%:1.05 a 1.13]. were factors asssociated with RRI. Conclusions. One of four patients had RRI. Carious lesions with pulp involvement, pulp treatment and osteolytic process were associated with a higher prevalence of RRI.
