The globulomaxillary cyst is a cyst that appears between a maxillary lateral incisor and the adjacent canine. It exhibits as an "inverted pear-shaped radiolucency" on radiographs, or X-ray films. However, all regional teeth will be vital.
The globulomaxillary cyst often causes the roots of adjacent teeth to diverge.
This cyst should not be confused with a nasopalatine cyst.
Treatment is by enucleation, or surgical removal.
