Nasopalatine duct cysts (NPDCs) are the most common developmental epithelial nonodontogenic cysts occurring in the oral cavity. This fissural cyst develops from epithelial remnants of nasopalatine duct. However, their origin is still uncertain. These cysts are usually asymptomatic and the most common clinical symptom reported is swelling in the anterior part of the palate, just behind the palatal papilla. We report a case of NPDC in a 19-year-male patient with classic clinical, radiological, and histopathological features.
