Cystic lesions of the jaw are a common occurrence. We present a case of a large unilocular cystic lesion in maxilla associated with an impacted tooth, impinging on the nasal floor. The uniqueness of the case is the high probability of a dual pathology; a cystic pathology associated with the impacted tooth (likely dentigerous cyst) and a large radicular cyst involving the apices of teeth from 21 to 26. The patient presented with a rare finding of a palatal swelling rather than a buccal swelling associated with cystic lesions involving maxillary posterior teeth. Enucleation of the cyst and extraction of the impacted tooth were performed, no other teeth were extracted. The report describes the treatment and follow up of the patient.

Keywords: Cyst, Maxilla, Radicular cyst, Unilocular, Enucleation.
