Abstract Nasoalveolar nasoalveolar cyst, which originate from epithelial remnants of nasolacrimal duct, are nonodontogenic soft tissue lesions of the upper jaw. These cysts are thought to be developmental and are presented with nasoalveolar cyst in the upper lip and nose, swelling on the palate, and sometimes nasal obstruction.

Because of cosmetic problems, they are often diagnosed at an early stage.

These lesions are mostly revealed unilaterally nasoalveolar cyst also can be seen on both sides. In this case report, a patient who complained of nasal obstruction and nasoalveolar cyst diagnosed with bilateral nasoalveolar cysts and treated by sublabial excision is presented and clinical features and treatment approaches are discussed with the review of literature.

This developmental disorder which is defined as a nonodontogenic cyst of the upper jaw is seen four times more in women than men. It is mostly located unilaterally and left sided but rarely can be seen bilaterally.

Nasolabial cyst - Wikipedia

Nasoalveolar cyst patients are presented mainly in the fourth or fifth decade [ 1 ]. The roof of the cyst wall and the nasal mucosa above it were excised.

The opening nasoalveolar cyst the cyst was widened. Meanwhile, the edges of the nasal mucosa and the cyst lining were trimmed smooth.

Loose nasal packing was then applied.

Statistical analysis was performed using commercially available software SPSS, version Group differences were analyzed using the nasoalveolar cyst test for continuous variables.

Results The transnasal group comprised 9 men and 25 women with a mean age of Most patients had a history of intermittent swelling over the nasolabial area, usually characterized as a painless lump located nasoalveolar cyst the unilateral ala of the nose.

In some patients, the lump protruded from the upper lip or effaced the nasolabial fold, resulting in minor discomfort.


Cyst diameter varied from 6 to 40 mm as estimated by CT. Both operations were successful in all patients. There were no major complications in either group of nasoalveolar cyst.


nasoalveolar cyst Operations for 14 of 34 patients in the transnasal group were performed on an outpatient basis. In the nasoalveolar cyst group, all patients were hospitalized for the operation.

The duration of surgery for patients in the transnasal group was significantly shorter than that for patients in the sublabial group. The medical costs in the transnasal group were significantly less than those in the sublabial group Table 1.
