Histogenesis of the lateral periodontal cyst and the gingival cyst
of the adult.
3) The differential diagnosis of these papules includes: gingival fibrous nodule, papilloma, focal epithelial hyperplasia, fibroma, gingival cyst
, multiple hamartomas, and exostosis.
4%) cyst were also reported and not even a single case in this entire span was diagnosed as of eruption cyst, gingival cyst
, lateral periodontal cyst or of buccal bifurcation cyst.
1) The lesions with similar morphology and color that one should consider in a differential diagnosis are fibroma, giant-cell fibroma, peripheral ossifying fibroma, gingival cyst of the adult, and exostoses.
5) The gingival cyst of the adult appears as a firm or compressible smooth-surfaced nodule.
This study also showed that even palatal resolution occurs earlier than gingival cyst.
Palatal cysts are somewhat larger and less numerous than the gingival cysts of the newborns, but the two entities are otherwise clinically identical.
16%) infants needed surgical excision, two of them aged 2 months with gingival cysts, one with palatal cyst at the age of 4 months and 3 infants with gingival cysts at 8 months of age (Table 3).
Prevalence of neonatal palatal and gingival cysts is mentioned by many authors5,6,7,8,9,10 to be 65-85%.
The most prevalent odontogenic cyst was radicular cyst n=45(45%) followed by dentigerous cysts n=31(31%), odontogenic keratocysts n=14(14%), lateral periodontal cysts n=6(6%) and gingival cysts n=4(4%).
Malali et al28 reported that the most dominant location of the gingival cysts was canine and premolar region of the mandible, consistent with this study and accounts 0.
9%) of other cysts, such as lateral periodontal, botryoid odontogenic, and gingival cysts
