Objectives: We report two cases of nasopalatine cyst by discussing the diagnostic and therapeutic aspect and review the literature.
Case report: There were two cases of nasopalatin cyst aged 20 years and 19 years respectively. We noted a mass filling the upper vestibular in our two patients. Computed tomography showed a fluid cyst located in the nasopalatin duct. Surgery was performed under general anesthesia in the first patient and local anesthesia in the second patient. Anatomopathological examination of the room highlighted a cyst. No operative incident was noted.
Conclusion: The nasopalatin cyst is an epithelial, embryonic non-odontogenic tumor of the maxillae. His diagnosis is radiological and histological. The vestibular surgical approach may allow complete excision of the cyst without dental, neurovascular and bucco-nasal fistula lesions.
