In this particular case, the differential diagnosis of the maxillary cyst in which the cavity is fully lined by respiratory epithelium should include the surgical ciliated cyst or an unusual radicular cyst.
The surgical ciliated cyst is a cystic lesion which develops after a surgical procedure such as maxillary sinus surgery (e.g., Caldwell-Luc), orthognathic surgery, and trauma caused by dental extraction.
This lesion could correspond to a special surgical ciliated cyst mimicking a radicular cyst [3] but the patient has no previous history of trauma or surgery in the maxillofacial region.
