Nasolabial cyst is a rare epithelial and non-odontogenic cyst of the jaw. It is situated behind the ala nasi, extending backwards into the inferior nasal meatus and forward into the labio-gingival sulcus. Predominant symptoms are swelling of the nasal vestibule, local pain, and nasal obstruction. Radiology is not specific and CT scan may be contributive. Surgical excision is the first line treatment; it proves the diagnosis and prevents recurrence.
