Retention cyst of the maxillary sinus is a benign lesion produced from obstruction of a seromucous gland or duct. It is mostly asymptomatic but sometimes is accompanied by facial pain, headache, nasal obstruction, and other symptoms. However, there are some debates on whether the symptoms are directly related with retention cyst. These cysts typically do not require treatment. However, when accompanied by symptoms, treatment can be administered for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. We report a case in which facial pain is caused by a maxillary retention cyst suspended from an infraorbital nerve.
