Cystic lesions of the anterior maxilla and ala of the nose are both odontogenic and nonodontogenic. Nasolabial cyst is an uncommon cystic lesion in this location, which clinically presents with progressive cystic swelling and nasal obstruction. Diagnosis is based on clinical/radiological findings and confirmed by histopathological examination of the excised cyst. Herein, we present a case report of nasolabial cyst in a 50-year-old female who presented with swelling over anterior maxilla.
