Abstract The nasopalatine duct cyst (NPDC) is a developmental cyst of the anterior palate's midline, usually presenting as an asymptomatic swelling located just behind the maxillary central incisors. It is the most common non-odontogenic cyst of the jaws but is seen rarely in children. The purpose of this paper was to report an unusual case of nasopalatine duct cyst in a 7-year-old boy who presented with a slow-growing, slight swelling of the anterior palate together with malpositioned permanent maxillary central incisors. Although rare in children, NPCD should be included in the differential diagnosis of anterior palate swelling, particularly if associated with malpositioned maxillary central incisors.
