Nasolabial Cyst (also known as nasoalveolar or Klestadt’s cyst) is a rare soft tissue lesion that occurs in the region of the maxillary lip and atar base. It is usually unilaterally developmental, rather than inflammation, in origin and arises from non-odontogenic epithelium. The typical clinical feature of nasolabial cyst is a slowly enlarging asymptomatic swelling in the nasoalar base caused by a smooth and fluctuant space occupying mass. Nasolabial cyst is Iikely to remain undetected unless and until it becomes infected or associated with facial deformity. This report documents the presentation and management of nasolabial cyst in a 54-year-old female with complaint of swelling and tenderness lateral to right ala of nose for approximately 2 years and completely enucleated by sublabial surgical approach.
Key Words: Nasolabial Cyst, Sublabial approach
