Diagnosis and management of bilateral nasolabial cysts.

Parwani R, Parwani S, Wanjari S - J Oral Maxillofac Pathol (2013)

Bottom Line: At few places, stratified squamous and pseudostratified columnar epithelia with many cilia and goblet cells were also evident.Capsule was loosely arranged with fibrous tissue and chronic inflammatory infiltrate.Left-sided cystic specimen showed two or more layered stratified squamous lining epithelium with thin capsule.

ABSTRACT
Nasolabial cysts are painless, submucosal, non-odontogenic jaw cysts presenting as soft tissue swellings in the maxillary anterior mucolabial fold lateral to midline, leading to elevation of nasal ala. Present case documents bilateral nasolabial cysts in a 69-year-old Asian female patient. In the present case, extraoral swelling of maxillary lip and elevation of nasal ala was observed on right side of the face. Intraorally, soft and fluctuant bilateral cysts were observed. Straw-colored fluid was aspirated from the right cyst. Radiographically, erosion of bone in a "cupping" fashion was observed in the region of left cyst. The cysts were enucleated using intraoral approach. Histopathology of the right-sided cyst revealed a cystic cavity lined by stratified squamous cells along with a few mucosal cells. At few places, stratified squamous and pseudostratified columnar epithelia with many cilia and goblet cells were also evident. Capsule was loosely arranged with fibrous tissue and chronic inflammatory infiltrate. Left-sided cystic specimen showed two or more layered stratified squamous lining epithelium with thin capsule. Diagnosis of bilateral nasolabial/nasoalveolar cysts was confirmed.

Mentions: Histopathology of the right-sided cyst revealed a cystic cavity lined by variable thickness of epithelium predominantly made up of many layered stratified squamous cells along with a few mucosal cells [Figure 3]. At few places, stratified squamous and pseudostratified columnar epithelia with many cilia and goblet cells were also evident [Figure 4a and b]. Capsule showed loosely arranged fibrous tissue infiltrated with dense diffuse chronic inflammatory infiltrate. Left-sided cyst specimen showed two or more layered stratified squamous lining epithelium with thin capsule [Figure 5]. Diagnosis confirmed the presence of bilateral nasolabial cysts.
