Median Palatine Cyst

By Andrew Allmendinger, Michael Gabe and Sylvie Destian

Abstract

Median palatine cysts are rare, non-odontogenic fissural cysts of the hard palate. These cysts occur in the midline of the hard palate, behind the incisive canal. Only two case reports have documented these cysts on multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT), neither giving detailed descriptions of the cysts. Knowledge of their existence is important and should not be confused with malignant tumors. We present the first case describing the MDCT characteristics of the median palatine cyst
