Abstract

The clinicopathological features of two unusual cystic lesions, one arising in the nose, a calcified mucocoele or a calcified retention cyst and the other in the maxillary sinus a dentigerous cyst originating in a supernumerary tooth, are described. The literature on these two rare lesions is briefly reviewed.
