The surgical ciliated cyst is a very rare cyst of the maxillary antrum and accounts for about 1.5% of all the oral cysts. This cyst occurs as a delayed complication after radical surgical intervention in the maxillary sinus. Many authors have suggested that this cyst occurs mainly in middle decades and presents as a nonspecific, poorly localized pain occurring in the maxilla. The treatment of choice is enucleation. Here we report a case of surgical ciliated cyst in a 27 yrs old female patient, in which the etiology is proposed to be traumatic extraction, which is quiet rare.
