Gingival cysts, which are more frequently reported as gingival cysts of adults (GCA), are soft tissue cystic lesions of odontogenic origin that are infrequently seen, especially in children. These lesions usually appear as localized firm elevations on the facial gingiva in the anterior segment of the mandible. The purpose of this paper is to present a rare case of a gingival cyst discovered on the palatal aspect of the posterior maxilla in a four-year-old child. The lesion was treated with excisional biopsy.
