Nasolabial cyst is quite a rare non-odontogenic, soft-tissue cyst forming in the sublabial area and the anterior maxillary region. The patients present to us with a slowly enlarging swelling, usually without any symptoms. They are commonly diagnosed earlier because of cosmetic concerns. Many a time, they are excised either under general or local anesthesia. Surgery is also feasible with nerve blocks. Infra orbital nerve is the terminal branch of the maxillary division of trigeminal nerve. Usually the block of this nerve is not commonly used as a sole anesthetic technique even in specific facial surgeries. We report a successful management of a case of excision of nasolabial cyst in an adult male under intra oral approach of infra orbital nerve block alone.
