Background and Objective: The nasolabial cyst is rare and is thought to arise from remnants of nasolacrimal duct. The purpose of this study was to examine the clinical and pathological features of nasolabial cyst in order to provide basis for its correct diagnosis and treatment. Materials and Methods: The eighteen cases of nasolabial cyst which were in from January 1988 to December 2000 were used as subjects. These cases were examined retrospectively according to clinical, histopathological and radiographic features. Results: More females than males were observed, and individuals in their forties were more frequently noted. Swelling of nasolabial fold was most frequent symptom. The lining epithelium were pseudostratified or stratified squamous epithelium. All cases underwent operation via sublabial approach and the disease recurred in only one case. Conclusion: Careful clinical and radiologic evaluation should be considered in diagnosis of nasolabial cyst. (J Clinical Otolaryngol 2001;12:240-243)
