Rights and Permissions


Nasolabial cysts are rare lesions present in the soft tissues beneath the ala nasi. Excision of the cyst through the sublabial incision is the most well-known treatment modality, with a low recurrence rate.


In this study, we discuss, through a literature review, the diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and a modified combined endoscopic and sublabial surgical technique for the treatment of this disorder.

Patients and methods

Ten patients with a confirmed diagnosis of nasolabial cysts underwent combined endoscopic and sublabial enucleation of the cysts, and were followed up with a clinical examination and endoscopic assessment.


No recurrence was recorded during a follow-up period ranging from 3 to 12 months.


Nasolabial cysts can be enucleated with the use of a nasal endoscope to ensure complete excision.
