Nasopalatine duct cyst ( NPDC) is described as most common non-odontogenic developmental cyst of the jaws. Despite being common, its clinical and radiographic presentation could be varied and it can sometimes be a diagnostic challenge. This paper presents an unusual case of an infected NPDC associated with an impacted inverted mesiodens and a history of trauma that misled the clinical diagnosis.
