Nasolabial Cysts





diagnosis, treatment, nasolabial cyst


Objective: Nasolabial cysts are benign nonodentigenic cysts that occur in the anterior maxillary area. The standard treatment is defined as cyst excision via inraoral sublabial approach. We aimed to review the patients who had nasolabial cysts and underwent surgery in the light of the literature.

Material and method: Nine patients who underwent surgery for nasolabial cyst between October 2014 and January 2014 were included in the study. All patients underwent computed tomography for the size and neighborhood of the cyst. All patients underwent cyst excision via inraoral sublabial approach under general anesthesia. Patients were followed up for 12 months for recurrence.

Results: Seven of the patients were female and two were male with a mean age of 42.22 (±11.81) years. All patients complained of swelling causing facial asymmetry. The size of the smallest cyst was 18 mm and the diameter of the largest cyst was 40 mm (mean 29±8.84). Paranasal computed tomographs in the coronal plane showed smooth-surfaced cystic lesions without erosion of the bones. No recurrence was observed at a mean follow-up of 6.7 (±2.99) months.

Conclusion: Although nasolabial cysts are rare, they should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients presenting with a mass in the nasal vestibule causing facial asymmetry.
