Abstract

We present a case of nasopalatine duct cyst in a 35-year-old female. The cyst was diagnosed based on the presence of only one clinical symptom and no obvious clinical signs, which is a relatively rare occurrence. However, the radiographic and histological presentation of this lesion was typical of a nasopalatine duct cyst. Therefore, this case report aims to highlight the variable presentations of the nasopalatine cyst, which is often misdiagnosed and treated as an endodontic infection.

Key words: Nasopalatine cyst, Incisive canal cyst, Cone-beam computed tomography, Non-odontogenic cyst.
