Abstract


Nasopalatine duct cyst (NPDC) is an intraosseous, developmental, epithelial, non-neoplastic cyst and is considered the most common non-odontogenic cyst of the midline anterior palate. This cyst develops mainly from epithelial remnants in the nasopalatine duct. Following the non-vital pulp, lesions may develop in the periapical area around the apex of the anterior teeth due to the spread of infection and the formation of NPDC. Radiographically, the NPDC is well-defined round or roughly heart-shaped. Enucleation is the preferred treatment plan for removing NPDC. The presented report deals with the diagnosis and treatment of NPDC in a 30-year-old male patient with no complaints or symptoms.
