The nasolabial cyst is an uncommon non-odontogenic cyst arising in the maxillofacial tissues. This lesion presents in an extraosseous location in the region of the nasolabial fold and can cause swelling in the furrow, alar nose elevation, and upper lip projection. Despite the uncommon occurrence of nasolabial cysts, it is important to recognize the characteristics of this lesion. The paper documents the presentation of nasolabial cyst in a 33 year old woman and discusses considerations related to the diagnosis.
