A rare case of nasolabial cyst; A case report
AUTHOR(S): Vinayak Kumar Mantu, Ruchi Mitra
ABSTRACT:Nasolabial cyst is a rare nonodontogenic, soft-tissue cyst occurring in the sublabial area and anteriormaxillary region. The nasolabial cyst is classified as a fissural cyst, found outside the bone, and on the region corresponding to the nasolabial furrow and alar nose. This cyst is frequently asymptomatic with the most usual sign being alar nose elevation. In spite of the low occurrence of nasolabial cysts, it is important to recognize the clinical characteristics of this lesion. The patient usually presents with a slowly enlarging asymptomatic swelling. They are usually diagnosed in early stages because of cosmetic problems. In our paper we report a nasolabial cyst of a 73-year-old woman and discuss the diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and treatment with light with the literature available.
