Globulomaxillary cyst is a rare, spurious cyst. It was considered to be an inclusion or developmental cyst that arises from entrapped nonodontogenic epithelium in the globulomaxillary suture. Later, it was included as a fissural cyst secondary to proliferation of entrapped epithelium between the globular portion of the medial nasal and maxillary processes. Because of lack of evidence to support the theory of embryogenic epithelial entrapment in the site, most authors dispute the presence of the lesion. Herein, we are presenting a case of globulomaxillary cyst in a 20 year old female patient with an unusual radiographic appearance as a full moon.
