The nasolabial cyst is an uncommon lesion of soft tissue, with nonodontogenic origin and uncertain pathogenesis. Its occurrence is usually unilateral and has a predilection for female patients (4: 1). Clinically is characterized by a volume increase in the nasolabial area causing elevation of the bridge of the nose and the upper lip projection. In this paper, the authors report the case of a 68-year-old female patient, complaining of swelling in the right nasolabial fold region, approximately 2 years of evolution, without reported episodes of painful symptoms, with clinical features compatible with the nasolabial cyst. Intranasal aspiration of the cystic content was carried out, and immediately performed the injection of radiographic contrast and profile and occlusal radiographs, to locate the lesion. Then, we proceeded to surgical enucleation of the lesion. The diagnosis of nasolabial cyst was confirmed after histopathological examination. After 45 days the patient was discharged, with full clinical recovery without functional and aesthetic complications.
